Drawing on their 1984 title Candles and Mir
rors and its subsequent editions, the authors present another comprehensive curricular guide. With 30 titles in all, this edition adds 20 new, frequently taught titles, ranging from classics like Julius Caeser
to Zora Neale Hurston's Their
Eyes Were Watching God and Avi's young adult novel Nothing but the Truth.
Each highly detailed chapter includes brief lists of themes, concepts, and related readings, suggested discussion questions, and further activities. In this solid, substantive resource, high-school English teachers, and librarians gathering resources for them, will find plenty to supplement lessons. Useful addresses are appended.
