I don't write when I'm teaching. Teaching is about taking things apart; writing is about putting things together.
—Toni Morrison, New Yorker Magazine, 2003

Hello, students! This is Prof. Tropington's literature seminar, "Troping in the Literary Field!"

All The Tropes is a great place to learn about literary techniques, but most of the tropes here aren't quite accepted by the literary field. These ones are. Straight from the textbook, these are the tropes you will learn about in your English class. This index is designed to be a quick go-to guide to various literary terms.

Similar to the We Are Not Alone Index, which indexes tropes that also have pages on The Other Wiki. See also Universal Tropes, Omnipresent Tropes, and The Oldest Ones in the Book.

Nothing to do with learning about Lit. Or the study of White Magic.
