A thoroughly revised and updated edition of Thomas C. Foster's classic guide—a lively and entertaining introduction to literature and literary basics, including symbols, themes, and contexts—that shows you how to make your everyday reading experience more rewarding and enjoyable. While many books can be enjoyed for their basic stories, there are often deeper literary meanings interwoven in these texts. How to Read Literature Like a Professor helps us to discover those hidden truths by looking at literature with the eyes—and the literary codes—of the ultimate professional reader: the college professor. What does it mean when a literary hero travels along a dusty road? When he hands a drink to his companion? When he's drenched in a sudden rain shower? Ranging from major themes to literary models, narrative devices, and form, Thomas C. Foster provides us with a broad overview of literature—a world where a road leads to a quest, a shared meal may signify a communion, and rain, whether cleansing or destructive, is never just a shower—and shows us how to make our reading experience more enriching, satisfying, and fun. This revised edition includes new chapters, a new preface, and a new epilogue, and incorporates updated teaching points that Foster has developed over the past decade.

Mit dem Werkbeitrag aus Kindlers Literatur Lexikon. Mit dem Autorenporträt aus dem Metzler Lexikon Weltliteratur. Mit Daten zu Leben und Werk, exklusiv verfasst von der Redaktion der Zeitschrift für Literatur TEXT + KRITIK. Mary Shelleys »Frankenstein« ist neben Bram Stokers »Dracula« der zweite große Archetypus des modernen Horrorgenres. Im Unterschied zum Fürsten der Finsternis ist Shelleys Hauptfigur kein übernatürliches Wesen, sondern ein künstlich erzeugter Mensch, der durch die Grausamkeit und Ignoranz seiner Umwelt erst zu dem Monster wird, für das ihn alle halten. Wirklich monströs hingegen sind die ganz normalen Menschen: mit ihren kalten Herzen und ihrem Wahn, die Welt im Griff zu haben.
