This is a guide to recognizing the difference between primary, secondary, and tertiary texts, and how these are used in literary studies.
In literary studies, primary texts are original works of literature.
Secondary texts are works that interpret and analyze primary texts.
Tertiary texts are works that abstract, index, organize, compile, or summarize primary and secondary texts.
