5 Additional Suggested Preparation In addition to the required assignments listed, it is recommended that students become familiar with many useful literary terms before entering the class. While in-class review of the terms definitions will occur, the majority of our time will be spent analyzing, interpreting, evaluating literature using the terms. A great resource that students may want to consult is The Bedford Glossary of Critical Literary Terms by Ross Murfin Supryia M. Ray. However, there are many other useful resources available online in bookstores. Some of the terms that we will use this year are as follows: Allusion form omniscient Ambiguity free verse onomatopoeia Analogy genre (over) generalization Anecdote hyperbole paradox Antagonist ideology parallel structure Assonance idiom(atic) parallelism Characterization imagery personification Claim implied protagonist Colloquial inference rhetoric Connotation intention rhetorical devices deductive logic inverted syntax round character Denotation irony satire Dialogue limited point of view simile Diction metaphor setting Didactic mood speaker Ellipsis motif stream of consciousness Epic motivation style Euphemism narrative stylistic elements/devices extended metaphor narrator symbol(ism) figurative language neologism theme flat characters novel thesis Foils novella tone
