The Well-Educated Mind offers brief, entertaining histories of five literary genres fiction, autobiography, history, drama, and poetry accompanied by detailed instructions on how to read each type. The annotated lists at the end of each chapter ranging from Cervantes to A. S. Byatt, Herodotus to Laurel Thatcher Ulrich preview recommended reading and encourage readers to make vital connections between ancient traditions and contemporary writing. The Well-Educated Mind reassures those readers who worry that they read too slowly or with below-average comprehension. If you can understand a daily newspaper, there's no reason you can't read and enjoy Shakespeare's Sonnets or Jane Eyre. But no one should attempt to read the "Great Books" without a guide and a plan. Susan Wise Bauer will show you how to allocate time to your reading on a regular basis; how to master a difficult argument; how to make personal and literary judgments about what you read; how to appreciate the resonant links among texts within a genre what does Anna Karenina owe to Madame Bovary? and also between genres. Followed carefully, the advice in The Well-Educated Mind will restore and expand the pleasure of the written word.
