    Even in the 21st century, many voices in the West still promote the supposed virtues of communism. It is not difficult, of course, to sing the praises of a political system that demands control over all of the economic and social activity of its citizens if you have never actually lived under it. Well, the author of The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain, actually lived in Czechoslovakia when it was under communist domination. He presents an accurate and unvarnished perspective regarding the true effects of collectivism upon the government and the Czechoslovakian people during the last half of the twentieth century. The author presents his story in a journal/diary style, beginning in the early 1950’s and ending with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Includes a wide variety of color as well as black & white pictures or drawings. 48 pgs, hc. ~ Mike

    When American students study world literature, it is typical that much of it comes from Europe or even Russia. Many of these poems come are from the Middle East, India, Africa and small islands around the world. The authors are mostly unfamiliar and the poems were originally in languages we would never be able to read. So much is to be gained in reading poems from parts of the world where we may understand so little of the people there. All of the poems are in English and have been organized into universal themes: words and silences, families, this Earth and sky in which we live, losses, and human mysteries. The variety of countries represented is outstanding: Taiwan, Ireland, Mali, India, Mexico, Paraguay, Wales, Japan, Poland, Sweden, Turkey, Mauritius, New Zealand and more. There are 129 poems/poets and 68 countries represented. Brief notes on the authors and an index in the back allows you to search by country or author. Poetry lets you see into the soul of another person in a way that is different from narrative literature. Make this book part of your world literature course or add it to a unit study of world geography and cultures. It would be a lovely gift to a young person who loves to read or write his/her own poetry. Pb, 211 pp. ~ Sara

    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
