About this book
How to Study a Novel has long been established as the one book about the novel that every student of literature at school or university needs to read. In a series of clearly written, eminently practical chapters, John Peck takes the reader through a set of logical steps that show him how to respond to, interpret and develop his own view of a novel and how to present that response in an effective essay. This thoroughly revised and expanded Second Edition has three new chapters taking this process one step further, showing how to make use of the new critical thinking that has swept through literary criticism in recent years.
