Understand Literature in One Sitting

Ever wanted to understand the significance of literature? Or wanted to know where you should begin when studying it?

A Student’s Guide to Literature takes up questions like:

  • What is great literature? What separates it from pop culture?
  • Why is literature so compelling?
  • What should we read?

Literary scholar R. V. Young addresses these timely issues in this guide to Western literature and poetry. He demonstrates that literature liberates the mind from cultural and temporal provincialism by expanding our intellectual and emotional horizons. Learn how great fiction and poetry are integral to a liberal education, and visit the classic works of literature again—or for the first time.
