it is just hard to process it all.


Basically, it is a very good glossary of literary-analysis terms. The idea is to pick one term/idea each week and talk about it in relation to whatever book dc has read that week.


There are sample socratic discussions scattered through-out the book. I didn't find these very helpful at the time I read the book.


The list of literary terms and their definitions is much more extensive and helpful than any other source I have found. However, it took watching Teaching the Classics and reading Well-Educated Mind for me to actually get to a place where I could discuss books beyond the obvious. The book Deconstructing Penguins was also very helpful, but approaches the discussion differently than WEM, which was really the most helpful.
