The Close Reading of Poetry | A Practical Introduction and Guide to Explication

The Close Reading of Poetry | A Practical Introduction and Guide to Explication | Litteris | Scoop.it

description from The Scout Report

 

"This handy guide from University of Victoria English professors G. Kim Blank and Magdalena Kay, provides a well-composed and insightful rubric for reading poetry. While the introduction points out that there is no single way to read a poem, the rest of the entry provides some important tips. For instance, when interpreting, it's important to continually reference the poem as it stands. The authors expound on ten themes: Title, Key Words & Tone, Word Order, Figurative Language: Imagery, Sound: Rhythm & Rhyme, Speaker & Voice, Time & Setting, Symbol, Form, and Ideas & Theme. The site is especially suited for late high school and early college students, but it can also help clarify the interpretation of poetry for anyone who loves to read."

Kids Experiencing Massive Problems with Book Discovery

Kids Experiencing Massive Problems with Book Discovery | Litteris | Scoop.it
Book discovery is a pressing issue in the print and digital world. Major online stores are hard pressed to keep up with the sheer amount of new content being published on a daily basis and the brick and motor locations tend to focus on bestsellers and adult content. Kids have the hardest time in discovering new authors and new books to read because no one exclusively caters to their needs.

Worldreader: Mobile Publishing South of the Sahara

Worldreader: Mobile Publishing South of the Sahara | Litteris | Scoop.it
Last April, UNESCO released its study Reading in the Mobile Era on the subject of mobile reading in emerging markets. The study found that not only were people reading on devices with small screens and limited functionality, but also that they tended to read more. Take note: this signifies a major step from a disconnected public with limited access to print toward an engaged readership reachable on the device they carry in hand.

If Ebooks are Software, It's Time for Version 2.0

If Ebooks are Software, It's Time for Version 2.0 | Litteris | Scoop.it
I think ebooks are where books are heading. I’m not saying that paper books will die. They will probably always have a place. But I think that in the future, the roles of paper books and ebooks will flip: the ebook will be the most-read version of the book. The paper version may still be viewed as canonical, and, though it will remain more convenient for some purposes, it will be read less often. If I’m right about this, the quick-and-dirty, device-limited conversions that publishers have done are not appropriate for ebooks in the future.
