I made a claim in my first post about book blogging and the "I"-centered review that I'd like a little feedback on: "the spread of "I"-centered reviewing covers for a relative lack of vocabulary and strategies for reviewing books."
What I want to know, well, I guess...am I right?
I recently saw this list of 40 basic literary terms mentioned quite a bit, and the number and velocity of links, tweets, and reblogs suggested that people want more vocabulary for this stuff than maybe they have at their disposal.
Maybe this question is more generative--do you think about the techniques and vocabulary when you are reading or reviewing literature?
I know many of you have studied literature--how much of that education and training remains in your head? And what percentage of that could you use?
Would you like to use more formal terminology and modes of analysis? Why or why not?
I'm really quite interested in this and appreciate whatever feedback you can give.
