Literature : A Students Guide

Out Of Stock

Product description

Enjoying poetry and novels can seem irrelevant and out of touch in a world of texting, tweeting, and blogging. But even in this technological age, literature matters, and most especially poetry. In his new book Literature: A Student's Guide, seasoned college professor Louis Markos invites us into the great conversation that has been taking place in literature through the centuries and illuminates the wisdom and vision to be found there. He offers both a guide to studying and understanding literature, and an inspiring look at what it means to think like poets and view the world through literary eyes. In accessible language, Markos discusses the major periods of Western literature, the important approaches of literary criticism, and the postmodern fallacies that have driven students away from great literature instead of toward it. He writes not from dry academic interest but from a passionate love of literature and its life-changing power. Markos's approach to literature is firmly grounded in a clear Christian worldview, but his arguments will speak to both Christian and secular readers. His book holds out a truth for all: that the understanding and appreciation of literature (through the lens of poetry) draw us closer to God, his Word, and his work in the world. Part of the Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition series.
