Marshall Cavendish, 2008 - 158 páginas
Sometimes the personal stories behind famous writers can be as compelling as the works they pen. This new series introduces the life and writings of authors whose works forever changed the time period in which they lived, and whose writing continues to be a dynamic part of the literary landscape. Each book in the series contains a comprehensive list of the author's works, while highlighting and analyzing the writings most often discussed in high schools. from F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby to Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, an in-depth analysis of the writings and the historical time period in which they were written, along with the writers' biographies and critical commentaries of the past and present, provide the reader with a unique look into the worlds of these cultural icons and the writings we have come to regard as timeless.
