Literary Criticism: Ten Ways to See a Book book
This chapter provides the people with a variety of resources with which to engage in such conversations with own students, to help them to understand why not all stories are created equally and moreover that there really is a legitimate reason why certain books are truly canonical, whereas others fall short. Most professional educators of the English language arts have engaged in or to some degree utilized literary criticism, either in own schooling or otherwise. Contrary to common interpretation, the phrase literary criticism does not by its nature have anything to do with disapproval or advice. Multicultural critics believe that race and culture are central to life, and thus attention to heterogeneous cultures must be paid when examining both life and literature. They contend that to ignore cultures other than the dominant one(s)—or to pay attention solely to any singular race or culture—when reading, studying, and analyzing literature is simply a naive and incomplete approach.
