A detailed look at the author and his definitive work
A surprisingly detailed look at the author and his definitive work, this program enumerates onscreen the chapters best suited for individual learning and discussion. A substantial biography opens the program to provide context, moving then to analysis by several academics of the author-as-writer, characterization, and narrative style. The last segment addresses the novel itself, using the indicated reading points to anchor an extended examination. A host gives commentary and brief tours of historical sites, and the program incorporates many primary source photographs and illustrations. Advanced students. Color and black-and-white. Approximately 30 minutes. TMW Media. ©2010.
