Five video programs on various aspects of literary style. In part one, three works are compared and contrasted to illustrate differing points of view and writing styles. The second part discusses strategies used by writers to engage their readers. The openings of three novels are broken down into their multiple literary components: narration, characterization, setting, opening sentence, language, and imagery. In part three, examples of how great orators have used their skills for good and evil illustrate the immense power of the spoken word. Part four analyzes three poems and three distinctly different writing styles and offers interpretations in various media. The final part examines one of literature's universal themes, the transformation of characters. The program covers the motives prompting each transmutation, how the agony of change affects the characters and influences their actions, and the degree to which their lots are diminished or improved
