Book details

Rebekah Merkle has dabbled in a number of occupations ranging from running her own clothing label to designing fabrics to becoming a full-time high school humanities teacher (which is fitting, because she was a student in one of the founding classical Christian schools in the USA). Rebekah is also the author of the book Eve in Exile, but by far her proudest accomplishment is her crew of five outrageous, hilarious, high-speed teenage children, and her favorite role is that of wife to her similarly outrageous, hilarious, and high-speed husband Ben Merkle.

Look Inside the Book

This British Literature series covering classic English authors from Beowulf to P. G. Wodehouse is unique: Each volume of Logos Press's Brit Lit volumes gives you both the unabridged primary sources and the complete reference tools that teachers and students would need during a year-long British Literature class. No more flipping back and forth between reference books and dog-eared thrift editions: For the first time, the classroom helps and the classics themselves are interwoven for classical & Christian schools. Selected and edited by Rebekah Merkle, a veteran teacher at Logos School in Moscow, ID.

Each volume includes daily reading schedules; engaging comprehension questions for every day's reading with detailed answers; introductory essays highlighting themes and offering a Christian perspective; page-by-page, on-the-spot marginalia offering explanations, context, and important notes; memorization for 200 lines of poetry over the year; 90 integrative assignments and supplementary poems in the Poetry Workbook; comprehensive end-of-volume tests over readings and the Poetry Workbook.

This volume includes Defense of Poesy, Faerie Queene Book 1, Hamlet, and Much Ado about Nothing, along with assigned readings from Wyatt, Surrey, Spenser's Amoretti and Epithalamion, and Shakespeare's sonnets. Volume X: The Poetry Workbook includes the assigned readings and covers how to write sonnets.

What People Are Saying:

"I cannot even express what it means to me to have such an outstanding, high-quality course to offer my son. And I am a former English major, so I just want it to lend more credence to my words when I say: Thank you for a quality course, that makes me nearly want to cry for joy it is so wonderful. I would say more about how much I enjoy Rebekah's 'voice' in the introductory or marginal notes, her light touch, and her sense of humor.... It's really the next-best thing to having an actual teacher right there with you, and is so much like what my ideal me would be doing if I could." -Gretchen P, homeschooling parent
