Question in Regards to LITERARY CRITICISM and LIAGB
Posted by: fromaradio (

Hello all--

I've been studying various literary criticisms this past semester and I'm wondering if any of you have opinions on which angles Lost in a Good Book would be best analyzed from...

I was thinking maybe feminist, psychoanalytical, or marxist, but I would love and appreciate other opinions.

Hi fromaradio, welcome to this happy band of ne'erdowells.

If you have checked out the general flows in Nextian (where we mailny hang out) you would probably guess that our most likely angles would be food and Johnny Depp, although few of us males find the latter angle that absorbing. I would suggest socio-economic and political with particular reference to revolutionary politics rather than just Marxist.
