We Weren't Born Literate: Reading the "Genres."
LaRocque, Geraldine E.
Certain forms of literature present special comprehension difficulties for readers at all levels. Each of the genres--poetry, drama, the short story, the essay, biography, and the novel--presents special problems and difficulties to some of its readers who would find their reading more enjoyable and profitable if they understood the ways to surmount the barriers of form. Examples of some of these special problems for each form are presented and discussed briefly in this paper. (TO)
