|Critical Literary Theories|
Literary Critical Theory is a tool that helps you find meaning in stories, poems and plays. There are many different ways to interpret a novel or short story. When we read literature, we do so to learn more about: The psychology of the character and individuals in general.The Sociology and history of the cultures that produce the specific pieces of the Literature.Before exploring, in brief, different theories, it is important to develop a reading strategy that will help you form ideas. What makes these so much different from that one it has much to do with external desire to do something and influence, where the other one explain why something works or happens the way it does would not even explore any of those things, and focus only on the writing feature. I found this very interesting, as not only are you diving into the character that your reading material is about, but you are literally exploring the writers themselves to discover why they did what theydid. I think that a surrounding condition has a completely and totally effect on the way a writer writes, this way giving energy from one’s surroundings to the story. I also find it interesting that one could explain the text that their reading by figuring out the way of thinking of the based on a made up ideas on the character and understanding the motive of the character.
