Understanding Fiction by Cleanth Brooks and Robert Penn Warren is still one of the best text books on how fiction works. Even though the book is old, I still, think it is essential to the young writer who must also seek to become a strong reader. I bought this book while I was still in high school and found it much more engrossing and thoughtful than any of my school literature texts and better certainly better than my high school teachers.
