    Must-Have Reference for Every Professional Storyteller's Library

    From 'alliteration' and 'ambiguity' to 'tragedy' and 'utopia,' you'll find here clear scholarly definitions of terms used in literary criticism The discussion on 'comedy,' fore example, defines as subgenres romantic comedy, comedy of manners, frace, and high comedy that of 'folklore' defines 'folk drama,' 'folk songs,' and 'folk tale.' It's worth reading from cover to cover, and every graduate student should own it as well.

    The Most Helpful Book on Your Shelf

    If you are a student of literature, there simply is no more important, more helpful resource you will put on your bookshelves. If you are not an English major, English graduate student, or English professor, then this may be sort of like buying the OED to use as a desk reference, but if you are in one of those three groups, it is well worth the money.
