Los Angeles-based illustrator Nathan Gelgud has prepared for Signature a chart that explains ten lesser-known literary terms. They will surely impress your friends who attend the book party, but may annoy those who are not as fond of books as you are.
You probably know what a climax is, and maybe even how to pronounce denouement, but do you know what part of a plot makes up the anagnorisis?
Besides “anagnorisis,” you’ll find in the visual beautifully illustrated explanations of such terms as “pathetic fallacy,” “prolepsis,” “in medias res,” or “malapropism.”
