This unique information source and time-saver for literature teachers includes 247 useful lists for developing and planning lessons for secondary and college students. Some of the lists supply teacher background; others are to copy for student use; many give new twists to studies topics.

For quick access and easy use, the lists are printed in full-page format, cross-reference throughout, and organized into nine distinct sections:

I. LITERATURE ... AN INTRODUCTION includes 16 broad lists covering main types of literature; Nobel Prize winners; an extensive literary glossary with pronunciation aids; literary and Biblical allusions; famous characters; gods and goddesses; and others.

II. BOOKS ... FOR ALL AGES provides 15 lists, ranging from "Best-Selling Books" and "Just Good Reading for Teens," to "Reading Lists for the College-Bound" and "Puzzle and Brainteaser Books."

III. GENRES ... FOR EVERY TASTE offers 48 lists relating to autobiography and biography, comics, detective and spy stories, documents, epics, essays, fables, fairy tales, fantasy/horror/ghost stories, folklores, latter/diaries/journals, novels, and short stories.

IV. POETRY ... REFLECTION OF THE SOUL details 32 different types of poetry from ballad through sonnet; contains a poetry glossary; and explains stanza types, versification, poetic devices, and more.

V. DRAMA ... THEREBY HANGS A TALE features 16 lists, from "Drama Masters," "Drama Critics' Circle Awards," and "Shakespeare: Complete Plays and Poems," to "Long-Running Broadway Plays."

VI. THEMES ... UNDER ONE UMBRELLA suggests 48 thematic lists encompassing ethnic literature (including African American, Native American, Spanish and other world literature), the special contributions of female authors, young adult concerns, existentialism, transcendentalism, symbolism, and more.

VII. PERIODS ... INTO ONE ERA & OUT THE OTHER furnishes 20 lists of background information, such as inventions by century; literary, dramatic and other events from the Renaissance to 1900; classicism, romanticism and neoclassicism; and fiction from around the world by decade.

VIII. POTPOURRI ... WEIRD, WHIMSICAL, & WORTHWHILE presents 37 captivating, off-beat lists such as rare book values, daffynition, and last words of authors, as well as practical lists on the Dewey Decimal and Library of Congress classification systems, and alternative book reporting activities.

IX. ENDINGS ... REFERENCES & AIDS contains 15 lists of references for teachers and student: how to evaluate literature texts, student literary questionnaires, resource lists for cassette and computer software for teaching literature, and other teacher aids.

In short, The Literature Teacher's Book of Lists gives you a ready source of excellent examples, key words; teachable content, and teaching ideas that would otherwise take many years to compile. It will save you time and help you instill in your students a genuine appreciation for the world of literature.
