Studying the Novel

£2.99

Product description

How do literary critics distinguish between "story" and "plot", or between a symbol and an image, or between "tone" and "mood"?
This third edition answers these and other questions. Considerations of developments such as post-colonialism and cultural materialism are added to existing discussions of feminism, structuralism, post-structuralism, and other theoretical approaches. There is straightforward practical advice on such matters as the analysis of prose passages, and on taking notes and revision, and a section on the writing of essays and answering of examination questions is included. A new section on the novel in an international context enlarges the cultural scope of the book.
This complete introduction offers practical guidance on the techniques of reading and analyzing novels, and is well-illustrated with examples from a wide range of novels and stories. It provides clear explanations of complex critical approaches and offers detailed advice on the writing of essays and the answering of test questions.

Most of the second-hand items you see online have been donated, by supporters like you, to our high street stores. Each item is then priced, photographed and listed on this site by our amazing team of volunteers from across the country.

After you have bought your item, our team of volunteers package and dispatch it from the Shop straight to you or your chosen recipient.

All profits from the sales of our goods go towards funding Oxfam's work around the world. We rely on your donations to sell online so please keep the cycle of goodness going!

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
