This website deals with my analysis of the works of the principal writers of American and British literature. These explications are culled from lectures and handouts which I developed during my thirty-five years of teaching literature at the university level and from my publications in scholarly books and journals.
I analyze around two hundred writers and six hundred works. My students often found these analyses helpful not only in understanding the literary works, but also in research and term papers.
Futhermore, college and high school teachers and teaching assistants have frequently requested copies of my handouts to use in their classes since most of the handouts are designed for a one-hour class period.
Any teacher or TA who believes that these handouts may be beneficial is free to use them in their classes. However, since the materials on this site are copyrighted, I ask that no one repost them on other sites.
Concerning the link MY NOVEL, it is under construction. In 2013 I plan to begin a free serialization of my novel The Mysterious Plus, a cross-generational account of the French-Algerian War and its aftermath.
Please use the Blog link for comments about any aspects of my website. They will be much appreciated.
Blogs from some of the 25,000 or so visitors to my website indicate that they have found it enlightening and helpful in understanding and appreciating literature. I hope that you will too.
