With an intention to increase the student's appreciation of literature and help him develop a love for reading this edition provides enjoyable prose and poetry for student reading.
Each anthology in the A Beka Book literature series is a valuable tool to the Christian young person seeking to increase his knowledge of good literature. The student will be exposed to a wide variety of short stories, poems, essays, and plays and to a good balance of serious and humorous selections from some of the finest writers of world literature. Works included in this series have been chosen for their literary and moral merit. Although A Beka Book may not endorse the entire contents of each selection or the work from which it is taken, selections reflect Christian principles with an emphasis on character-building and life-enriching themes. * Part of the learning process is developing proper discernment according to the truths of the Scripture, realizing that while a Christian may not be able to entirely approve of an author's beliefs, lifestyle, or work, he can appreciate the author's God-given talent. Selections included in Themes in Literature are intended to increase the student's appreciation of literature and help him develop a love for reading. The main goal of the text is to provide enjoyable prose and poetry for student reading.
World Literature introduces students to the wonderful variety of classic literature produced through the centuries. The first ten units showcase a medley of writing styles that illustrate various literary devices or themes. The last six units present literature by region and era. This breakdown helps the student to gain a full understanding of literature's variety, beauty, and history.
