The six volumes in this series are designed to enrich the study of history, literature, their mutual influences, and their shared legacies. Each book begins with an interdisciplinary Chronology that identifies, defines, and places in context the notable historical events, literary works, authors' lives, and cultural landmarks of the period.A key feature of each volume is a comprehensive overview essay summarizing the era's major historical trends, social movements, cultural and artistic themes, literary voices, and enduring works as reflections of each other and the spirit of the times.The core content comprises 20-30 insightful articles on representative writers of the period, along with excerpts from essential literary works that highlight a historical theme, sociocultural movement, or the confluence of the two. These primary sources serve the Common Core emphasis on "informational texts from a broad range of cultures and periods", including "stories, drama, poetry, and literary nonfiction".Each volume serves as an affordable, concise, and well-organised companion for students in history, English, and language arts classes at the high school, community college, and lower undergraduate level.
