Reading for the Plot: Design and Intention in Narrative - Peter Brooks This is a very worth-while book of criticism (even for those of us not much interested in Freudian interpretation) particularly after reading Great Expectations and Absalom, Absalom, on which the author devotes two chapter-length essays. The chapter on Great Expectations is included in both the Norton Critical Edition of GE and the Bedford/St. Martin's Case Studies in Contemporary Criticism edition of GE.
