"Bram Stoker’s 1897 Gothic novel, Dracula, features many of the most powerful tropes in fictional narrative: suspense,love, seduction, heroism, sacrifice, and the burning desire for some form of immortality. Deeply contrasting settings—East and West, London and Transylvania, the sophisticated city and the wild mountains, aristocratic mansions and dank vaults, a happy home and a lunatic asylum—present a binary world that finds its ultimate formulation in the eternal conflict between good and evil." ~ from Grant Horner's guide
The Canon Classics Worldview Guides provide an aesthetic and thematic Christian perspective on the most definitive and daunting works of Western Literature. The Worldview Guides focus on the big picture (both the good and the bad) without neglecting the details. Each Worldview Guide is a friendly literary coach -- and a treasure map, and a compass, and a key -- to help teachers, parents, and students appreciate, critique, and master the classics.
The bite-size WGs are divided into these ten sections (with some variation due to genre): Introduction, The World Around, About the Author, What Other Notables Said, Setting, Characters, & Argument, Worldview Analysis, Quotables, 21 Significant Questions & Answers, and Further Discussion & Review. A free classics test and answer key are also available online.
