A brilliant idea for a textbook.
Lee Rumbarger, University of Oregon
Really terrific at conveying the tacit dimension of interpretive insight, the basis for the skilled moves that literary scholars make. Nowhere have I seen more lucid explanations of how trained readers of literature come up with valid interpretations of texts and how effective writers produce responsible and persuasive textual explications.

-- David Richter, Queens College of CUNY

It "demystifies" the process of writing literary analysis in a way I’ve never seen a textbook do before, . . .This book would be adopted immediately by many of my colleagues in literary studies.
Christian Smith, University of South Carolina

What I’m most impressed with is the authors’ ability to condense a complicated and unruly process into a clear, logical, and orderly discussion. It’s what I’ve been hoping for: A clear and compelling explanation of the how and, most importantly, the why of literary analysis.
Stephen Bernstein, University of Michigan-Flint

I endorse this book with enthusiasm! I’m impressed with the way the authors translated rhetoric and composition research into a lively sophisticated writing pedagogy. Great way to develop writing and analytical skills using literary materials.
Deborah Miller, University of Georgia

The entire concept is a dramatic shift, and eminently more useful than any other supporting text for literary analysis.
Carol Murphy, Adams State College
