It is very critical that you analyze everything you read because in order for you to fully understand the subject at hand you must pick every word apart and thoroughly understand the meaning of each word. Francine Prose does this by using a technique called “close reading”. Prose believes that “Close reading” is extremely important and shows us how this is done by explaining a
In How to Read Literature Like a Professor, Thomas C. Foster claims that all literature stems from other literature and in fact all literature is a part of one large work. A large amount of authors borrow ideas from other literary works. Of course, the seemingly most obvious author to borrow from being William Shakespeare. On the contrary, Foster believes that most of the exceptional Shakespeare quotes are overused and referencing Shakespeare can lead to something which Foster calls the “high brow” effect which means that referring to Shakespeare can make the author seem pompous. Other authors and literary works can be borrowed from as well, but many are not as widely known or are well-known now but won’t be for long.

The author’s usage of multiple literary genres and methods, from romance lays to Christian and pagan symbolism” (1).

This section of the novel was powerful because it connected all of literature’s history. Instead of viewing literature as a mass collection of novels, it can now be viewed as one story. By viewing literature as one story “you begin to pick up on some of these other elements, these parallels and analogies, however, you’ll find your understanding of the novel deepens and becomes more meaningful, more complex” (Foster 31). Consequentially, literary works are based on other literary works which solidify their eternal connection. Reading a novel about novels is a hidden pleasure that many people, especially within the English community, indulge in.
In “An Occurance At Owl Creek Bridge,” Ambrose Bierce carefully hides the theme in ways that use detail, flashbacks, and conflict, forcing the reader to deeply analyze the text in order to find the qualities that make a story complete.

But we are bound to exhaust all other hypotheses before falling back to this one.” Also, in the novel, the logical solution and evidence is explained in further detail, for Holmes gives “a sketch of the course of events from memory” in the resolution. There are many subplots in the novel, such as Seldon’s escape, Sir Henry and Mrs. Stapleton, and Sir Charles Baskerville and Laura Lyons, which answered many questions about the case and evidence against Stapleton. On the other hand, the main conflict in the film is Holmes and Watson against the superstition aspect of the case.

He stated at one point in his memoir regarding a job with limited creativity, “If I am to give my people any creative input, it will have to be in selecting material from a pre-approved book. So I set about writing that book” (Schneider iBook). He wants to break the corporate boundaries set, and he found the work around and acted upon it revealing that his way of pushing the limits is by action, not by thought of possibility.
