Giving an Account (Reader) By William Walter
Paperback: $29.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
What missed opportunities are there for teachers who do not recognize the personal narrative’s natural advantages over fiction! If you understand fiction at all, you understand that it is its... More > realistic, not fantastical, elements that make it so appealing. Fictional plots, settings, and characters have to seem real to the reader in order for them to be interesting—plots have to make sense, descriptions of settings must seem familiar, and characters’ thoughts must, at least vaguely, mirror our own thoughts. But even with the best fiction writers, the imagination sometimes can produce false fabrications. Personal narratives, such as those found in this textbook, are for the most part not fabrications, but represent the real thoughts, feelings, and situations of real people. The text will include works by Plutarch, Lewis and Clark, George Müller, James Boswell, Booker T. Washington, Charles Dickens and others. An accompanying study guide is available separately.< Less

Speaking in Symbols (Reader) By William Walter
Paperback: $29.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
Fantasy, Gothic, Science Fiction, Mystery, and Detective: these genres are currently all the rage in twenty-first–century America. A quick look at the current best-sellers about vampires and... More > whatnot will be proof enough. But everything sold in today’s bookshops, although somewhat enter­taining, is not necessarily good. There is virtually only one proof of literary legitimacy—the test of time—and most of the works contained in this anthology have with­stood that test. ¶ This work seeks to do several things. First, it attempts to show the very origins of imaginative works through the stories of oral tradition, and thus introduces the “core” of all good modern fantasy works. It also attempts to show the connection that the various genres have with one another. Finally, this anthology encourages student readers to penetrate the mere enter­tainment value of a good story in order to under­stand its deeper levels of meaning.< Less
