Become a Literature Critic
A literature critique, sometimes called a literary analysis or a literary critical analysis, is an examination of a piece of literature.
The scope of a critique of literature may be to examine a single aspect of the work, or the work in its entirety, and involves breaking the literary piece apart into its separate components and evaluating how they fit together to accomplish the piece's purpose.
Literary critiques are commonly executed by students, scholars and literary critics, but anyone can learn how to critique literature by following these steps.
