Overview

Have you ever read a book and wondered if it had a deeper meaning? The books of Stephen King have entertained and terrified millions of readers. By using critical theory, you might find intriguing new ideas in King's supernatural situations and psychological plot twists. Critical theory allows readers to examine the influences behind a creation as well as the impacts of that creation. Consider how others have critiqued Stephen King's work. You may discover an entirely fresh view of literature-your own.

Essential Critiques introduces readers to critical theory and its application. By discussing and analyzing the art of pop culture icons in theater, literature, film, art, and music, this unique series guides students through the process of thinking critically, creating a thesis, and supporting their arguments.
