Specialized terminology is at the heart of nearly every academic discipline. English is no different. These terms help us to understand works of literature and their value to a specific time and place.
In each English 240 class, professors and their students focus on a different set of literary terms. Some of them are posted here. If you would like to contribute information on a literary term, please post it to the site under the category–Literary Term Wiki.
