Prepare your students for the AP* English Literature and Composition Exam! To be successful your students need to understand and write about literary terms.

Essential Literary Terms offers clear, concise definitions of 200 crucial literary terms for introductory literature students. Drawing on her extensive teaching experience, Dr. Hamilton uses classroom-tested examples and exercises to reinforce understanding and help students apply what they learn in their own writing.

Clear Definitions, Well-Chosen Examples
Each entry provides a concise, carefully developed definition. The definition is supported with one or more illustrative examples drawn from mostly classic, some contemporary, literary works.

Designed for Ease of Reference
Essential Literary Terms is written in a flexible, modular style for ease of reference. An open, appealing design leads students to primary terms quickly and alerts them to related terms defined elsewhere in the book.

More Than 100 Exercises Build Critical Analysis Skills
Exercises ask students to identify a literary device or technique in a passage and analyze its effect. These exercises, which build in length and complexity, reinforce students' knowledge of essential terms while challenging them to think analytically about literature.

MLA Documentation Help
A brief, up-to-date appendix on MLA documentation and a sample student paper on a literary topic make Essential Literary Terms an even better value for students.
