Description

This comprehensive anthology brings together the best literary writing from the Bible onwards. Authors include Dante, Chaucer, Jane Austen, Maya Angelou, C.S. Lewis, A.A. Milne, Sebastian Faulks and Penelope Lively. Reading a good book is for most people a deeply satisfying experience. What, though, makes a book good? According to Mary Batchelor, good fiction `rings true'. It encourages us to exercise our moral judgement, leads to greater understanding of ourselves and others, broadens our compassion and expands our knowledge of life and of human strength and frailty. In The Lion Literature Collection, readers are taken on a rich and stimulating journey through some of the finest of world literature. Extracts of power and profundity are mixed with humour and satire.
