Sharpbrew Sharpbrew
This is exactly the right book for someone like me, who wants a lively, expert, up-to-date and, within its relatively brief compass, a reasonably comprehensive guide to terms in language, literary criticism and theory, but one that is not too technical, not clogged with jargon. I like the clarity and conciseness, and the helpful cross-referencing which allows one to put this definition or that in a wider context. As the authors say, there are various longer books to which one can turn for treatment in still greater depth; but for the intelligent, enquiring high school or university student, the merits of this little compendium will not soon be exhausted.

I liked this book but it was not as user friendly for my high schoolers. Very textbook-like reading. Some references and examples were very obscure.

Exactly what it is. A handbook of terms in stories and about literature. Quite helpful for vocabulary quizzes if needed.

Very good.
Larosa Larosa
This book just gives a brief outline or overview of quite a few literary terms. It's a good starter book.
