    I regard this as The Literature Bible. This is a MUST for aspiring academics in want of learning the ART and Contextualizing SKILLS of writing all forms of literature.

    This is a paint-by-numbers guide to writing literary essays. Geared towards undergraduates, a lot of the information should have already been covered in an AP high school class, and the stories and poetry is chosen because they easily illustrate the Roberts' concepts and terms. Most literary analysis is not so straigtforward as this. The most useful chapter is the detailed outline of basic prosody - nobody knows what an ampibrach or bacchius is off the top of his head.

    I only wish I'd had this book in high school. I might have understood what my English teachers were trying to get out of me a little better. This is an excellent guide for high school and college students taking literature courses. I only wish I'd had this book in high school.

    I have to admit that I really only skimmed this book because it used to belong to my grandma and I wanted to see what she highlighted. I would think this would be a useful book in some ways, but I more skimmed it for amusement.

    Good ideas, but most of the literature he references is too obscure to be of use to me. I'm translating a lot of his teaching ideas into twenty-first century possibilities. I feel like this might have been a book one of my English teachers used in the early 90s. Good ideas, but most of the literature he references is too obscure to be of use to me.

    I have this on my bookshelf right next to my desk. Every now and then, I read through the pages just to remind me of my university days.

    Another fabulous resource for my writing (which needs all the help it can get) Again, I find I need a little more sometimes but this a is definitely a solid reference book. Easily four stars.
