What does it mean to read a book? What does "reading deeply" look like?
In The Well-Educated Mind Susan Wise Bauer provides a guide not only on how to read, but what to read. The Well-Educated Mind offers a brief and entertaining introduction to six literary genres - fiction, autobiography, history, drama, science, and poetry - including a history of the genre and detailed instructions on how to read it. The annotated, chronological lists at the end of each chapter - ranging from Cervantes to A.S. Byatt, Herodotus to Laurel Thatcher Ulrich - preview recommended reading and encourage readers to make vital connections between ancient traditions and contemporary writing.
This fourth edition has been expanded and updated to include works from the 21st century, additional guides and helps, and a new chapter on reading the most essential science texts, such as those written by Aristotle, Galileo, and Hawking.
