KIRKUS REVIEW

A textbook introduction to the joys of literature. Grebanier, Shakespearean scholar and professor emeritus at Brooklyn College, uses the inductive method to inculcate appreciation of the great books in the heretofore unenlightened. He offers lessons in structure and the specialized language of the literary critic, from hyperbole and synecdoche to ottava rima and Pindaric ode. Premasticated.
