Essential Literary Themes - School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

These volumes provide detailed guidelines on examining literary works for thematic content and critiquing them. Each selection presents comprehensive overviews of familiar literary classics and films, followed by insightful analyses and critical-thinking questions. Theses and their supporting arguments are highlighted and thoroughly explained. The inclusion of popular films, including those based on books by John Green, Suzanne Collins, and Veronica Roth, heightens the appeal. Color and black-and-white stills taken from films and cinematic and staged versions of titles under discussion generously illustrate the volumes. Highly recommended for able, sophisticated students, and particu[larly] valuable for advanced English and literature classes.
