Books in the Lucent series follow an easy-to-navigate format. Initial chapters offer a biography of the author and a discussion of the work as it relates to the times in which it was written. Subsequent chapters outline the story's plot and describe major characters, while a final chapter is devoted to major themes of the work. All of these elements work together to enhance the student's enjoyment and comprehension of the primary text. Each book also includes a series of study questions that probe main themes and an appendix of critical writings from reviewers and literary scholars that reflect how others have interpreted the work under discussion. An annotated bibliography points readers in the direction of other useful sources, and an extensive index helps students locate information quickly. Every Understanding Great Literature volume contains a complete set of critical tools to aid readers in appreciating some of the most popular and compelling pieces of writing in literary history.
