Product Description

Pull everything you can out of the classics!

Leland Ryken provides a clear pathway to understanding the "Great Works" through this engaging series of short guidebooks. Beginning with "why the classics matter" and "how to read a story," readers will find a helpful path to reading and analyzing influential works in the Western canon. Evaluating the text from a distinctly Christian perspective, this guide to Homer's The Odyssey includes commentary, points out scriptural allusions and biblical subtext, summarizes the plot, and examines the mythological background of The Odyssey.

Christian Guide to the Classics books provide:

  • An introduction to the author and work
  • An explanation of the cultural context
  • Published criticism
  • Definitions of key literary terms
  • Discussion questions
  • Resources for further study

    78 pages, softcover. High School-Adult.
