Summary "Thinking deeply about a book, pondering its meaning and trying to understand how the author went about writing it is what analyzing fiction is all about! Join our hosts as they investigate the many different stylistic choices that an author can make when creating a work of fiction. Consider examples from authors, such as Gary Paulsen, Sandra Cisneros, Shirley Jackson and others, as you take a close look at mood, tone and point of view to see how they can each shape our understanding of events and characters in a story. Experience figurative language to see how it helps readers to appreciate both the power of language and its beauty. Then, take your understanding and appreciation of fiction to the next level as our hosts explain the many ways in which you can 'connect' with a text. Once you begin to analyze fiction, you will find that the end of the book is really a whole new beginning."--Container
