    This classic political satire by George Orwell attaches the idea of totalitarian government using farm animals as characters. The animals try to run the farm on their own and create a paradise of progress and equality, but certain animals (namely the pigs) begin to take control and take away freedoms. With great parallels to many governments, this book is a must-read. A few complete and unabridged editions are available. The Signet Classic Edition has a preface by Russell Baker and is 144 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    Yesterday's Classics has found another Marshall book to reprint. Good choice. Providing a historical look at the writers of English/British literature, this collection includes background information and excerpts of their writings, interweaving the literature selection with the historical setting. It's a masterful and encompassing way to approach literature. Especially in the earlier portions, the author has tried to keep the literature in touch with history because he felt it illustrates how the political development of the country was influenced by and influenced the literary development. At the end of many sections is a list of Books to Read suggesting additional and complete works to read.

    The author says the selections were chosen because they seemed to best illustrate the breadth and depth of English/British literature; although, sometimes he admits to choosing something because of its appeal to young people, as it is not always a writer's greatest or best known work that can be most easily grasped by young minds.

    The selection of authors and works is massive; grand; sweeping. However, it is possible to detect an interesting bias. There are no selections from women even though there were some women who had received literary notice by the end of the nineteenth century, most notably Charlotte Bronte and Jane Austen. There seems to be equal time given to poetry and prose.

    There are no lesson plans, assignment charts, or even discussion questions. The publisher does provide a chronological list of the writers included correlated with a list of monarchs that would make it easy to correlate readings to historical studies. Although this would not be considered a complete literature course, it is a valuable collection of well-selected literary works beautifully presented with comprehensive historical and literary analysis. 666 pgs, pb. ~ Janice
