The first in the Literary Themes for Students Collection, this set, designed very much with the curriculum-based standards and approaches to studying literature in mind, examines the overriding themes found in literature. This approach particularly helps students build critical thinking skills by making connections between thematically-similar works of literature, as well as providing a more global perspective by comparing and contrasting works from around the world. Beyond outlining the general treatment of the theme in American, British and world literature, the set profiles authors and highlights more than 50 major works centered around the theme. Also included are an extended list of works in all genres and media (fine art, dance, film, etc.) related to the theme as well as subject and title indexes.
