"[T]he most impressive thing about Tolstoy's magnum opus is that over three hundred and sixty-three chapters and well over half a million words he not only crafts a compelling story, but presents a view of life deeper and more vivid than many authors ever dream of." -From Samuel Dickison's guide
The Canon Classics Worldview Guides provide an aesthetic and thematic Christian perspective on the most definitive and daunting works of Western Literature. The Worldview Guides focus on the big picture (both the good and the bad) without neglecting the details. Each Worldview Guide is a friendly literary coach—and a treasure map, and a compass, and a key—to help teachers, parents, and students appreciate, critique, and master the classics.
The bite-size WGs are divided into these ten sections (with some variation due to genre): Introduction, The World Around, About the Author, What Other Notables Said, Setting, Characters, & Argument, Worldview Analysis, Quotables, 21 Significant Questions & Answers, and Further Discussion & Review.
A free classics test and answer key are also available here.
