"In The Secret Garden, Burnett shows the ugliness of human behavior and then, as if to shake her fists at her critics, overcomes human depravity with the power of Spring. Although her depictions of rebirth deserve criticism, the story’s message is one that Christians should heed—beauty and goodness will always triumph over the harsh 'realism' of Winter." ~ from Amanda Ryan's guide
The Worldview Guides from the Canon Classics Literature Series provide an aesthetic and thematic Christian perspective on the most definitive and daunting works of Western Literature. Each Worldview Guide presents 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 begin to 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.
