By Owen Holland. Illustrated by Piero. This comic-book-style journey through literary criticism looks at key figures and theories and tackles disputes about the value and meaning of literature, the role of authors, and the importance of the social and historical context in which a book is written. Covering novels, plays, poems, and more—from Plato to Virginia Woolf, Structuralism to Practical Criticism—the history and development of this discipline is made fun and accessible in graphic form as a way to help readers of all levels get more out of their reading. Grades 9 and up. Index. Suggested reading. Glossary. Icon Books. 176 pages. ©2015.
