Incredible graphics, informative videos, and a wealth of text, including extracts and readings, combine to present users with information about hundreds of authors. Historical background puts each author and literary period in context. From Chaucer to Post-modernism, this eight CD set spans the 14th to 20th century.
Each CD offers the same menu bar, options, and general structure
, making it easy to both navigate each program, and to move from one CD to the next. Features include a printable notepad on which students may record information for research purposes, web links to discussion forums, and bookmarks.
The powerful search engine allows users to search by writer, era, format, genre, theme, position on a timeline, and more. An extensive glossary of literary terms and other pertinent vocabulary is also readily available.
Within each CD, users may search, meet real authors in the Reading Guide, check out additional resources in the media index, and attend interactive "Master classes" to discover the many dimensions of literary figures, movements, and genres. The programs are designed so that users may resume from where they left off in a previous session.
