What are slants?

My teacher told us about slants but I'm still confused. (This is actually the first time I learned that definition of the word in literature) She said to use it in the set of thesis statements we have to write that are due in a few days. Can someone explain it to me thoroughly please? ^__^

Thanks!! ^__^

Did you mean italics? In A1 we usually slant book titles (if typed) and underline it (if written). For example:

The novel Madame Bovary was written by Gustave Flaubert.

I had read A Doll's House and found it interesting.

If you were not talking about italics, then I apologise I can't help.

Maybe slant = angle? As in, angle of approach? Presenting a specific argument and/or point of view as treatment for a topic?
