Great Books is a thoughtful, analytical way to view classic literature. Using Great Conversations, Book 4 as class text, we explore great authors work through a questioning lens to help us deconstruct and build meaning in complex and ambiguous text by the greatest authors of the Western world. Using a variety of questions and sharing insights through lively discussion makes Great Books a
fabulous literary program. If students do not already have the book, copies are available from several used bookstores, such as AbeBooks.com.
