Synopsis: New Third Edition, Perfect Bound-available August 2011. Hewitt's Lightning Literature and Composition guides use full-length novels, autobiographies, plays, essays, short stories, and poems to teach deep reading and composition skills. Unlike some literature programs that take a scatter-shot approach (where none of the literature seems connected) or that try to dump too much into one book, Lightning Literature guides focus on a few classics in depth, in a systematic manner. These guides are available for junior high and high school. Third Edition, Perfect Bound. The Shakespeare courses are structured differently from the other courses in this series. Rather than each lesson focusing on one literary topic (such as character or conflict), each lesson examines various aspects of the play or sonnets (two sonnets are examined in each sonnet lesson). Lessons cover the following works of Shakespeare and topics, some in a general way, and others particular to the plays and/or sonnets: Four of Shakespeare's comedies (A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Merchant of Venice, Twelfth Night, and As You Like It); Sonnets 27, 28, 93, 116, 129, 130, 136, and 138 (included in this Guide) ; Shakespeare's life; Schools of Shakespearean criticism; Shakespeare's language (blank verse, irony, soliloquys, stage direction, alliteration, assonance, simile, metaphor, imagery, personification, repetition, puns, antithesis, oxymoron, allusion) The Guide includes comprehension questions and answers, writing exercises, ideas for additional projects, reviews of movies and video-taped theater productions of the plays, and reading lists, schedules for using as a semester course or for a full-year course, bibliography. Historical context and modern schools of Shakespeare interpretation are also discussed Teacher's Guide included at no charge.
