    Readings

    Several famous examples of literary criticism have been curated for you within this section. Before reading them, it is recommended that you read the literary texts they describe: otherwise, they will not make much sense! You can learn more about finding your own literary criticism in the Literary Research portion of the Writing About Literature chapter.
