Multiple Critical Perspectives

There Are Many Ways To Look At And Interpret Most Books

With Multiple Critical Perspectives, your students will look at the same book through three different critical viewpoints. 

For example, evaluating a book from a Feminist perspective would give you a different interpretation than looking at the same book from a Marxist point of view.

The viewpoints chosen for each work depend on what the work best lends itself to, but some of the common views used in this series are:

  • Feminist theory
  • Marxist theory
  • New Historicism
  • Formalism
  • Mythological/Archetypal
  • Psychoanalytic theory

Each Multiple Critical Perspectives guide is divided into four parts: a general introduction to the work and then one section for each of the critical lenses being applied to that work.

Each critical section includes:

  • Notes about that approach
  • Essential questions
  • Three activities
  • Discussion questions
  • Essays or writing assignments

 We currently have MCP guides for these titles and will be adding more in the next couple of weeks:
