Don't let the small format fool you; there is a lot of good information in these little guides. Not your typical literature guides with basic comprehension and story element questions to go with each chapter, ICE guides are written at a very high reading level. They aim for a "level of critical and literary appreciation befitting the works themselves." Think of great authors sitting at a Paris caf talking existentialism and politics in each others' work. Imagine great debates on the humanity of a fictional character, or dialogues on western versus eastern settings for a story. Each guide begins with a short introductory appraisal of the context of the story followed by a basic plot summary, and then a more in-depth summary of some of the essential critical aspects of the work, in the form of short analyses from several contributors along with study questions. Students are then provided with a list of things to think about as they read, which helps them focus on key ideas and start to ponder them as they read. Then come the questions first are text-level questions which are based on the facts of the work and check understanding of the narrative, and then the higher-order questions, which focus on analyzing the truths that come from the work. These questions are what achieve the purpose of the guides: having students discern themes and parallels and critically evaluate them, both from a literary perspective and beyond to real life. A parent or teacher can choose which of these questions to answer, depending which are suitable for your student. The answer key in the back contains answers for both the text-level and higher-level questions. These guides are from a tradition-oriented perspective and will not include any analysis on postmodern ideas such as feminism, deconstruction, etc. About 5x8", and 40-55 pp each, pb. ~ Sara
