Barron's series of Classic Novels presents complete, unabridged editions of literary masterworks-titles frequently taught as part of high school English curricula. However, all books in this series contain far more than simple text. Each title also gives students-
An illustrated introduction that places the novel and it author within the larger
context of world history and literature
Glossary notes on every page that explain unfamiliar words and phrases
Running commentaries that summarize the narrative's action in sentence or
two, located either at the start of each chapter or at the bottom of each page
Fast Forward and Rewind features-time savers that allow readers the option
of skim-reading parts of the text without losing the story's sense
A concluding chapter-by-chapter study guide that analyzes the novel and
points out details that students should understand and remember
Edited by experienced educators, Barron's Classic Novels offer an entirely original approach to great works of American and English literature. These volumes serve as ideal classroom textbooks, and help to make many of the world's great novels approachable and enjoyable to students.
