What does it mean when a literary hero is travelling along a dusty road? When he hands a drink to his companion? When he’s drenched in a sudden rain shower? While many books can be enjoyed for their basic stories, there are often deeper literary meanings interwoven in these texts.

“How to Read Literature Like a Professor” helps us to discover those hidden truths… Thomas Foster writes in such a funny and witty way that you hardly notice that you are reading a book about literature!

Here are some questions for our discussion on the 3d of April:

1. Which literary symbols and patterns described by Thomas Foster could you recognize in the books we read and discussed in Protected content 2019?

2. Which literary symbols and patterns familiar to you are not mentioned in the book?

3. What makes a good book to you?
