World Literature (Book Set: World Literature for Christian Homeschoolers)

Students read classic novels known not only for their timeless literary merit, but for their setting in key periods in world history. Students also study great short stories, essays, speeches, and ancient writings by authors from around the world. We discuss literary elements such as theme, plot, character, setting, metaphor, irony, symbolism, tone, and style. The sometimes-humanistic worldviews of the authors are compared with a Christian worldview.

• Turn-in essays
• Five World Literature project questions, spread throughout the year

No boring essays to write! Compositions are related to World History and World Literature topics, including an original fable, a speech contrasting ancient wisdom to Biblical truth, a news article, a historical limerick, and a “how-to” essay. Students receive detailed corrections on their turn-in essays, with the benefit of Scott Clifton’s degree in journalism and his writing and editing experience.
