In its 13th Edition, the iconic Oral Interpretation continues to prepare students to analyze and perform literature through an accessible, step-by-step process. New selections join classic favorites, and chapters devoted to specific genres-narrative, poetry, group performance, and more-explore the unique challenges of each form. Now tighter and more focused than its predecessors, this edition highlights movements in contemporary culture-especially the contributions of social media to current communication. New writings offer advice and strategies for maximizing body and voice in performance, and enhanced devices guide novices in performance preparation.

As an instructor for Oral Interpretation of Literature courses, I find Routledge's publication of the Oral Interpretation text an outstanding resource. While the text guides those new to oral interpretation, I have seen growth with students at various levels of experience with oral interpretation practices. I also teach acting courses and love how techniques relate very well to similar performance styles. I highly recommend this book.
