Reviewer Comments:

This collection of 8 wonderful videos is informative and fun.  The narrator, John Green is an excellent teacher, who literally gives us a crash course in literature.  The topics range from How and Why We Read to narrated/animated versions about Romeo and Juliet, The Great Gatsby, Catcher in the Rye, and Emily Dickinson’s poetry.  His perceptions and insights are literary and extremely entertaining.  He makes connections, cites close reading interpretations and references the real world in his text to text, text to self and text to world analyses.   John Green is a literary analyst who looks at word choice and the writer’s craft as well as the deep meaning of literary texts.
