Product Description
This presentation serves as an introduction to what literary criticism is and seven different types of literary criticism:

Marxist Criticism
Psychoanalytical Criticism
Archetypal Criticism
New Criticism (Formalism)
Reader-response
New Historicism
Gender Criticism

Each section defines what that school of thought focuses on and gives examples of what sort of questions a critic might ask of a piece of literature. At the end, the poem "The Red Wheelbarrow" is used as an example of how you could interpret the work seven different ways.

Works great if you want to introduce your literature students to the concept of literary criticism. I use it with Advanced Placement English Literature classes, and those AP students latch on pretty quick to the ideas in the presentation.
