Hello! Welcome to Let’s Talk Literature, a blog dedicated to the analysis of literary works. We provide insightful analysis of prose and poetry, in a way that is easy for both scholars and laymen to understand. Unlike many of our contemporaries, our coverage is not limited to one genre. One post may be an analysis of Ngugi wa Thiong’o’s The River Between, while the next may be an analysis of Emily Dickinson’s “Because I could not stop for Death.” Our analysis is also not limited to a lens of literary theory, meaning that users will receive an encompassing analysis of a work.
In terms of how such analyses will be communicated, we believe that variety is necessary in these advanced technological times. Users do not always have the time, or means to experience information communicated over one specific medium, which is why we provide traditional written analysis, as well as podcast analysis. Not only does this accommodate you, the user, but it also proves beneficial in communicating certain information. For example, the analysis of a foreign work, in which the language is complex, may be better communicated via text, while a Western work may be better communicated via podcast.
