Product description

This fascinating series uses primary source images and nonfiction data to show the cultural, political, and economic conditions of the era in which six classic novels were written and set. As students read how the characters, plot, and themes were influenced by geographical, political, cultural, and economic issues of the times, they will develop a deeper understanding of the novel and its underlying themes. Included in each book is biographical information about the novelist as well as descriptions of experiences that shaped the author's opinions, perspectives, and biases as they are reflected in the book. The primary source images--including renderings, artifacts, and a illustrations--are used along with interwoven excerpts from each novel to demonstrate how these great works of literature reflected the times in which they were written.
