Each volume of Novels For Students
contains easily accessible and content-rich discussions of the literary and historical background of 12 to 15 works from various cultures and time periods. Each novel included in this new resource was specially chosen by an advisory panel of teachers and librarians -- experts who have helped us define the information needs of students and ensure the age-appropriateness of this reference\'s content.
Each volume (beginning with volume 32) will include two "Literature to Film" entries. Entries profiling film versions of plays/novels not only diversify the study of plays/novels but support alternate learning styles, media literacy, and film studies curricula as well.
Here are some of the novels they will find: "Adventures of Augie March" by Saul Bellow, "Beauty" by Robin McKinley, "The Lost Lady" by Willa Cather, "Murder on the Orient Express" by Agatha Christie, and "Tangerine" by Edward Bloor.
While Gale strives to replicate print content, some content may not be available in the eBook version due to rights restrictions. Call your Sales Rep for details.
