A stalwart supporter of classical literature myself for its enduring value to all ages, I highly recommend Ms. Jago's insightful suggestions for making Homer, Shakespeare, Hawthorne, Thoreau, et al. accessible and appealing to young readers who otherwise might miss out on a trove of timeless texts. As an instructor always endeavoring to ameliorate my own rationale for and methods of sharing the classics of literature with my young scholars, I find this work a refreshing reminder that the sages of the ages wrote for the benefit of all who take the time to dive into and immerse themselves in what these literary masters have bequeathed to us.
