One way to conceive of a literature review is to think about writing it as you would build a bookshelf.
You don’t need to cut each piece by yourself from scratch.
At undergraduate level literature reviews can be a separate stand alone assessment.
The literature review is generally in the format of a standard essay made up of three components: an introduction, a body and a conclusion.
The 5 elements of literature are the plot, point of view, characters, setting, and theme.
Literature is of great importance to everyone because of its huge amount of creating understanding from a different perspective in life.
A literature review is an objective, concise, critical summary of published research literature relevant to a topic being researched in an article.
