How to make a sound demonstration in the field of literary analysis? What are the building blocks for a cogent approach to comparative studies? We've paid attention to various scales of textual commentary, from the microscopic lens of close reading to the medium scope of thematic reading, with an eye to macroscopic trends in literary history and critical theory. We’ve befriended texts ranging from various genres (poetry; fiction; drama); related form to content, historical context to contemporary significance, and joined the dots connecting notions of authorship to reception theory.
