Bridges: Literature Across Cultures
Gilbert H. Muller, John Alfred Williams
McGraw-Hill, 1994 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 1048 pages
This literature anthology includes around 300 stories, poems and plays. It features a mix of famous and lesser-known writers from six continents of the world. The work is organized around five themes, which relate to situations people share universally: children and families; women and men; caste and class; war and peace; faith and doubt. Within each thematic chapter there are sections on fiction, poetry and drama, and a brief introduction suggesting connections between the stories, poems and plays. Questions for discussion and writing follow each selection, and each section ends with suggested writing assignments, which should encourage students to explore ideas and themes among genres.
