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

TV 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 WeAreNotAloneIndex, which indexes tropes that also have pages on TheOtherWiki. See also UniversalTropes, OmnipresentTropes, and TheOldestOnesInTheBook.
