The Gale Contextual Encyclopedia of World Literature enables students to analyse an author's work in the context of the author's life and times. this set covers world authors from many periods and genres, building a broad understanding of the various contexts in which literature can be viewed, from the biographical to the literary and historical. Works can be viewed through the lens of the heritage, traditions and experiences of the author's personal life and the beliefs, events and lifestyles of their surrounding world. The nearly 500 entries also identify the significant literary devices and global themes which define a writer's style and place the author in the larger literary tradition as chronicled and evaluated by critics over time. In addition to 500 images the set contains critical thinking and activity prompts, further enhnacing the student's own personal response to global literature.
