Short Book Review: How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster

Foster here offers a very approachable, very readable introduction to a deep reading of literature. He has taken the methods and theories taught in literature courses in universities and applied by professional literary critics and packaged them in a short and entertaining book. What is contained in that book will, of course, sometimes seem overly simplistic to those already well-read in the subject but the product is a great little introduction for those new to the subject and/or who do not plan on becoming experts.
