This “lively and entertaining guide to making your reading experience more rewarding and fun”, “focuses on literary basics; MAJOR THEMES AND MOTIFS (seasons, quests, food, politics, geography, weather, vampires, violence, illness and many more); LITERARY MODELS (Shakespeare’s plays, Greek mythology, fairy tales, the Bible); and NARRITIVE DEVICES (form, irony, plot and symbol, among others).”

This is a fabulous source for going deeper into what an author is trying to say within (above and beyond) the story line. Rather than who is the main character, you’ll focus on why the author chose that character and what his encounters really mean. For instance, one chapter is titled: It’s More Than Just Rain or Snow. Ok, the character got wet, but what does it signify WITHIN the story.
