Summary
"Studying Literature: The Essential Companion is a book designed to accompany students of literature - whether on English, combined humanities or foreign-language degrees - throughout the whole of their studies. This is a one-stop reference for all the information they need, both on their subject and on the best way to go about studying it." "Combining a concise glossary of critical terms and theories, a guide to literary theorists and a study skills guide in one, the Companion is written with a real awareness of the needs of students today and blends academic rigour with essential practical information."--BOOK JACKET
