Ways of Reading is a well-established core textbook that provides the reader with the tools to analyze and interpret the meanings of literary and non-literary texts.
Six sections, split into self-contained units with their own activities and notes for further reading, cover:

  • techniques and problem-solving
  • language variation
  • attributing meaning
  • poetic uses of language
  • narrative
  • media texts.

This third edition has been redesigned and updated throughout with many fresh examples and exercises, updated further reading suggestions and new material on electronic sources and the Internet, language and power, and drama.
