"No matter how strong one’s desire may be to escape the sins of the city, seeking the happiness and social harmony that lies out in the fields, any attempt to regain Eden apart from grace is doomed to fail. Man is wicked, regardless if he walks on grass or cobblestone. After all, the first sin of our first parents occurred far from any madding crowd, in the cool and quiet calm of a pastoral landscape, not a single city in sight." ~From Matthew Huff'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.
