Formalist Criticism Form of literary analysis that investigates a text by examining both its content and structure. In a formalist theory, a text's content should synthesize harmoniously with the text's structure to create an important meaning to the reader.
Key Ideas:
*Content and Structure unify harmoniously
* Moral Problems are part of the text's meaning.
*Close reading is the investigative method for determining a harmonious union between content and structure.

Biographical Criticism A form of literary analysis that investigates how an author's life directly and/or indirectly influences a text. Biographical info is best used to amplify and better understand the meaning of a text.
Reader Response There are as many texts as there are readers. Every reader reads something differently and takes things away from the book differently.
Historical Criticism Literary analysis that investigates the social, cultural, and intellectual contexts of the text. Includes the text's impact on the original audience as well as authors life.
