              Literary Theory For Beginners (EPUB ebook)

              By Klages, Mary; Illustrated by Reynoso, Frank; Foreword by Brown, Bill

              Have you heard the termsstructuralismanddeconstructionandpostmodernismbut aren't really sure what they mean? Have you taken a whole course on literary criticism but are still feeling lost? Here's the book you need to sort it all out-and enjoy doing so!InLiterary Theory For Beginn...ers, Mary Klages takes you into her classroom, cuts through the jargon, and explains the ABCs (and the DEFs as well) in terms you can get your head around. Her breadth of knowledge, her unique skills as a teacher, and the delightful illustrations of Frank Reynoso help us understand why literature matters, how it affects us, and how it reflects history, culture, and diversity. Here are ways of thinking about literature-not just reading it-methods of study and frameworks of interpretation from classical humanism all the way up to psychoanalysis, gender and queer theory, race, postcolonialism, and, yes, postmodernismWith wit and wisdom, Klages takes on the two most frequently asked questions about literature and makes it all fun:What does the work MEAN? (What is the deeper, hidden, or symbolic meaning? Did the author intend all these meanings? Are any and all meanings present in the text? Are all meanings equally valid?)What does the work DO? (Why is literature important? What effect does it have on the reader? How can literature be a force for social change?)So sit back, relax, and take it all in!

              Mormonism For Beginners (EPUB ebook)

              By Carter, Stephen; Illustrated by Atwood, Jett; Foreword by Riess, Jana

              Mormonism For Beginnersis a balanced, richly engaging introduction to the history, tenets, practices, traditions, and yes, debates and controversies of this uniquely American Protestant movement. Designed for the uninitiated or younger members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Lat...ter-day Saints (LDS), this book presents the history of the movement from Joseph Smith to the 21st century along with the key doctrines of the faith in the context of everyday life, as well as the essential scriptures. Not least of Carter and Atwood's accomplishments is addressing such headline-grabbing issues as polygamy, same-sex marriage, and the role of women in the LDS church in dispassionate, even-handed terms. Their goal is to shed a clear light on an often misunderstood belief system and way of life.
