LIVES THROUGH LITERATURE is a thematic literature anthology that interweaves texts to demonstrate interrelationships between life and literature, academic study and life experience.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This culturally diverse, gender-balanced anthology is organized by six types of human relationships: Parents and Children, Sisters and Brothers, Women and Men in Love, Wives and Husbands, Friends and Enemies, and Students and Teachers. Within each category, readings are also grouped by subthemes and subject clusters--often based on essential mythical or biblical themes. One subject cluster, for example, relates Freud's essay on "The Theme of the Three Caskets" to the classic myth of "Cupid and Psyche," the Grimms' "Cinderella," and Shakespeare's "The Merchant of Venice." An example of a subtheme grouping is de Maupassant's "The Necklace" paired with Ursula K. Le Guin's science fiction version, "Semley's Necklace." The text features four example-filled chapters on reading skills, critical analysis, and writing about literature. With its wide variety of readings and unique thematic groupings, this collection offers highly original yet meaningful opportunities for comparison and analysis.From the Back Cover:
