    I did not like this. Learned minimal, save for certain rhetorical and literary terms, and even then, the glossary is absolutely useless. Save your time, and don't if you have to read this for class? Godspeed, friends. I did not like this.

    Excellently structured. As it moves through higher-level (and more difficult) topics in analysis, it introduces new and more modern critical approaches.
