BJU Fundamentals of Literature (2nd edition) teaches the student literary analysis by discussing six literary elements: conflict, character, theme, point of view, structure, and tone. The student analyzes and evaluates authors, works, and themes in light of Scripture. The book includes an English translation of Rostand’s drama Cyrano de Bergerac.
BJU Elements of Literature divides the basic components of literature into the two broad divisions of marks and modes (comparisons, sound, syntax, allusion, symbol, and irony) and the genres of literature (folklore, essays, short stories, poetry, and drama.) Mr. Tim Snow teaches your student to define several elements of literature and identify examples of each within various literary works. Your student will explain the significance of each element in relation to the content, theme, and message while also analyzing the author’s worldview.
