A  Special  Note

Theory of Literature is (or ought  to be) a highly specialized study. The principles of literature theory are entirely inappropriate for anyone who has little or no experience with literature in general. And those who are already enjoying the adventures of good literature should avoid misunderstanding and misapplying the principles of literature theory. Applying literature theory is one thing, engaging in an exciting and meaningful lifelong adventure through literature is quite another.
