Analyzing Fiction: Hugo's The Man Who Laughs (MP3 download)

By Dina Schein Federman

 

This course on The Man Who Laughs teaches the rudiments of literary analysis, including:  how to determine a novel's theme; how to analyze characters, events and even descriptive details in order to see how they support the theme; what are the essential elements that make a story so dramatic; and how to understand the link between a fiction-writer's work and his epistemology.

This course was recorded at the Objectivist Summer Conference 2002 in Vienna, VA.
