Overview

The original CliffsNotes study guides offer expert commentary on major themes, plots, characters, literary devices, and historical background. In CliffsNotes on Kingsolver's The Poisonwood Bible, you explore life in 20th-century Congo as you follow the ordeal of missionary Nathan Price and his family, who are woefully unprepared to deal with life in such a drastically different culture and climate. Nathan is inflexible in his approach to both the Congolese and his family, and his wife and daughters are overwhelmed by their changed circumstances. The story of this family's struggle against the backdrop of the Congolese independence movement makes The Poisonwood Bible Kingsolver's most powerful novel yet. This study guide carefully walks you through every step of the Price family's journey by providing summaries and critical analyses of each book of the novel. You'll also explore the life and background of the author, Barbara Kingsolver. Other features that help you study include
  • An overview of the novel
  • A character map that graphically illustrates the relationships among the characters
  • A glossary of important terms and phrases from the novel
Classic literature or modern-day treasure—you'll understand it all with expert information and insight from CliffsNotes study guides.
