The Greenleaf Guide to Ancient Literature
by Cyndy Shearer

Our high school study of literature runs in parallel to our study of history. While our ninth grade students are studying ancient history, we also have them study ancient literature. Studying the two subjects together makes each class a richer experience.

This inductive study focuses on the texts and gives detailed reading assignments, observation questions, and discussion questions. The book is intended to guide a parent and student, teacher and student, or tutor and student as they read the important works of literature from Anglo-Saxon poetry and Beowulf to Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and Sheakespeare’s Hamlet. The final work studied in the guide is Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead which allows the students to compare and contrast the Medieval, Renaissance, and Modern world views.

The text, analysis, and discussion questions are all written from a biblical, Christian worldview.
