"Hamlet holds a mirror up to our lives, for we too must act in a fallen world, even when the way is unclear and when our proof is dismissed by others. We too are called to kill serpents, to “lose all” for the kingdom. Because it takes great courage to confront the enemy head on and might cost us our reputation or our lives, we, like Hamlet, would rather think and play with words than act." -From Jayson Grieser's guide

Look Inside the 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.

Super helpful

Teaching Shakespeare can be daunting as a homeschool mom. The worldview guides help with that. It gives an overview of who Shakespeare was, why we study him, and what world view he is giving. The plot summary was great and I appreciated the helpful questions. I definitely recommend the world view books to friends and I will be buying more.
