Thank You Gift for My Fans!

*Message from the Author*

I know I have been delinquent in posting lately. I apologize, and return with a piece offering for my fans. I have been absent while preparing my first online literature course. To thank you for your patience,  I am sharing a link that will allow you to take my new course for free!

Why would you be interested in this course? Research at Michigan State University has proven that close reading of literature engages complex cognitive brain functions. The benefits of cognitive development include increased intelligence, reasoning, language development, memory, problem solving and decision making.

As a college instructor, I have designed this course to help you understand the fundamental elements of fiction and help you read and analyze literature at the college level. With this course you can save money on expensive tutors or get a jump start on those college English courses with over 20 videos filled with key terms, concepts, and examples.

This course is also beneficial to book lovers, book bloggers, and book club members who want to discuss literature with confidence and authority. You don’t have to pay for an expensive college education to read fiction like a college graduate. Books are for everyone. Rise above the ordinary and engage your brain!

After taking this course you will be able to:

  • Identify the five stages of plot and the two pivotal moments in a work of fiction
  • Distinguish between the author and narrator in a work of fiction
  • Identify the method of narration in a work of fiction
  • Identify the three elements of setting in a work of fiction
  • Identify descriptive language in a work of fiction
  • Identify the four methods of characterization
  • Distinguish between direct and indirect characterization
  • Distinguish between flat and round characters
  • Distinguish between static and dynamic characters
  • Identify symbolism in a work of fiction
  • Identify allegory in a work of fiction
  • Identify theme in a work of fiction

    I too am a big fan and a big proponent of literary analysis. My blog is just a few months old, but literary writing and literary analysis will continue to be a big part of it:

    Feel free to leave a comment with shameless self-promomotion for your course — if it’s still avaiable. In fact, if it is, let me know and I’ll give it a quick plug in a post.

    Thanks for all your hard work!
