    Das Buch ist eigentlich ein Muss für jeden der gern und viel liest Man bekommt jede Menge Infos über die Dinge denen man in der Literatur ständig begegnet Welche Rolle spielen das Wetter die Jahreszeiten die Geografie in einem literarischen Werk? Welche Symbole werden oft verwendet? Wie charakterisiere ich die Figuren? Diese und andere Fragen beantwortet Foster in diesem Buch Außerdem macht er auf Anleihen aus anderen Werken aufmerksam die man in vielen Büchern findet Sie stammen meist von Shakespeare der Bibel oder aus der griechischen Mythologie Und er stellt eine These auf Eigentlich gibt es nur ein Buch bzw ein enziges literarisches Thema und alle anderen Bücher sind nur Varitationen dieses Themas Das Ziel des Autors nämlich den Leser zu befähigen künfitg mit noch mehr Vergnügen als vorher zu lesen hat der Autor auf jeden Fall erreicht Das alles ist auf sehr unterhaltsame Weise mit viel Humor und überhaupt nicht langweilig geschrieben Ich konnte das Buch kaum aus der Hand legen und habe es verschlungen Ganz nebenbei erhält der Leser viele Anregungen für weitere Lektüre und wenn man die erwähnten Bücher bereits gelesen hat hat man natürlich auch viele Aha Erlebnisse Ein Buch mit Mehrwert das ich absolut empfehle
