Introduce your students to more than seventy authors in a study that connects the authors' lives and beliefs as revealed in their writings with the corresponding literary periods. Lessons examine Colonial-Revolutionary, Romantic, Realistic/Naturalistic, and Modern literature and issues such as Darwinism and religious liberalism. Included is the Thornton Wilder play The Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden. The updated Teacher's Edition includes student pages and notes to enhance analysis and biblical application of lessons. It supplies answers to student questions, highlighted marginal notes, discussion questions, writing assignment ideas, and additional activities.
