Now packaged with the free ARIEL CD-ROM, this four-genre, thematically-arranged collection groups together selections that retell the same story or events: three interpretations of Cinderella from Walt Disney, The Brothers Grimm, and a Chinese folktale, for example, or the myth of Oedipus as told by Sophocles, Rita Dove, Randall Jarrell, and Sigmund Freud. Retellings includes many frequently taught works of fiction, poetry, drama, and non-fiction, as well as visual texts, and offers a complete introduction to reading, interpreting, and writing about literature.

She has occasionally taught courses in her doctoral specialty of Middle English literature, and she designed and taught for the humanities program a course on narrative built on the idea of “retellings” in art and literature.
