Abstract:

How well can you decode the signs that permeate our daily lives? All of us, 
consciously or not, constantly engage in the acts of reading and interpreting 
the signs in the world around us. But how do we sharpen these skills, deepen 
our awareness of meaning in a complex world, and ultimately reach our full 
potential as university writers? This book answers the needs of students of 
composition, culture studies, and literature, providing a process-orientated 
guide to analyzing anything.
 
In plain language, Fraser and Davidson present a logical set of instructions on 
how to perform semiotic analysis and how to develop compelling 
interpretations. The central idea is that analytical writing can be performed on 
any kind of text. The authors move from theory to practice, and offer a clear 
trajectory from selecting a phenomenon to analyze, to generating ideas, to 
drafting a lively, insightful essay. This is the textbook of choice for all 
students of writing. 

'An excellent book about how to develop critical judgement, and a very lively 
exploration of human understanding. Analyze Anything does what it claims, 
and it does it with style.' Dr Graeme Harper, Professor of Creative Writing and 
Director of the Honors College, Oakland University, USA
