Teach the process of literary analysis that enables your students to interpret and evaluate what they read in light of biblical truth. Readings offer instruction in six literary elements: conflict, character, theme, structure, point of view, and moral tone. Included is an English translation of Rostand's drama Cyrano de Bergerac.
The updated Student Text includes three new selections, as well as brief introductions for each selection, reading-check questions for thought and discussion, and biographical sketches of the authors.
The second edition is nearly identical to the first one, save a couple of minor changes. The biggest change is that the 25 page story "Gold Bug," by Edgar Allen Poe, has been replaced by a four page retelling of the David and Goliath story and the stories "Quiet Man," by Maurice Walsh and "The Necklace," by Guy de Maupassant. The other changes are small aesthetic adjustments here and there, but nothing that affects the text.
