"Fact and Fiction" has two goals. The first is to place before the general reader a rich and varied selection of extracts from English literature with lively and illustrative commentaries. Stuart Norman has drawn upon works as diverse as "The Merchant of Venice" and "Brokeback Mountain", "Great Expectations and Death of a Salesman", "Beowulf" and Ted Hughes' translation of "Ovid", all the time guiding the reader with explanation and interpretation. The second is to focus on the forms and styles of the texts and show how these reflect the many contexts in which they were written. Over sixty major novels, plays and poems are covered, combining a guide to background reading for those aiming for university with coverage of the critical skills required for A level and the International Baccalaureate. "Fact and Fiction" is ideal for anyone wanting to explore a wide range of writing, and for students and teachers of English literature it is indispensable.
