"One hundred and fifty years after its publication, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland remains a doozy and a delight for children and adults. The book stands out for many reasons, but is particularly exceptional as an innovative work of nonsense. It is also noteworthy for its lack of moralism and sentimentalism that was so en vogue during the Victorian era. But does the absence of an obvious moral mean the story has no meaning? And what is the draw to Wonderland, that dreamy realm of easily outraged creatures where madness is the ruling authority? What about that druggie caterpillar?" -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 here.
