The Well-Educated Mind offers brief entertaining histories of five literary genres - fiction, autobiography, history, drama, and poetry – accompanied by detailed instructions on how to read each type . . . Bauer will show you how to allocate time to reading on a regular basis; how to master a difficult argument; how to make personal and literary judgments about what you read; how to appreciate the resonant links among texts within a genre.
