Reviews


"Parker's text is a model of clarity and lucidity, and its accessible examples make even the most difficult theoretical concepts easy to grasp. How to Interpret Literature is compulsively readable--not just a page-turner--but even fun to read. My students found the book invaluable and have continued to use it as a reference in their other courses. There can be no higher recommendation than that."--Jamie Goodrich, Wayne State University


"How to Interpret Literature is the best book available in the field. In addition to being accessible to people with little to no background in literary studies, it includes some newer approaches to literature--ecocriticism, disability studies, and queer of color critique--that many competing texts don't."--Nowell Marshall, Rider University


"How to Interpret Literature offers well-informed, thorough, and incisive explanations of each theory."--Anthony Grajeda, University of Central Florida
