The Pleasure of Reading: Novels and their Writers and Readers

Eric Macfarlane (Author)
Available

Description

The Pleasure of Reading reflects on the joys of owning and reading books. It looks at the situations that lead people to become keen readers and the ways in which parents and teachers can encourage children's love of stories. It is critical of traditional methods of studying literature that deter many children from regarding reading as a pleasurable activity.

The book also looks at the interests and passions that motivate novelists and the wide range of subjects on which they choose to write, the kind of stories they tell, the themes that they explore and the skill with which they handle their plots, characters and settings. Particular attention is given to the novelist's role as a protester against injustice, persecution and the abuse of power.
