It reviews the fundamentals of Analyzing Literature that are usually covered throughout a one-semester, undergraduate college course. Our goal as creators of this course is to prepare you to pass the College Board’s CLEP Analyzing and Interpreting Literature exam.

This examination contains multiple-choice questions based on passages of poetry, drama, fiction and nonfiction from American and British literature. Some colleges may require candidates to take an optional essay section in addition to the multiple-choice section.

Through the guidance of Dr. Dana (Dean) Simpson, from Tufts University, this course will review materials intended to improve your ability to analyze prose, interpret metaphors and reinforce terminology used to discuss literary texts.

“Analyzing and Interpreting Literature” is a completely self-paced course. It has no prerequisites and it is offered entirely for free.


This course is designed to prepare you for the CLEP Analyzing and Interpreting Literature exam and cover other related topics as well.
