Literary Visions is a video instructional series on literary analysis for college and high school classrooms and adult learners. Noted critics, authors, scholars, and actors enliven this exploration of literature and literary analysis. Dramatizations, readings, and discussions build skills in critical thinking and writing. Illuminating excerpts of short fiction, poetry, plays, and essays -- both classic and contemporary -- highlight standard literary forms and devices including plot, myth, setting, and character. This course, containing 26 half-hour videocassettes, can be used as a complete college-level course; as supplementary material in courses in literature, composition, poetry, drama or those focusing on specific topics and genres within literature; as an offering for adult or continuing education students; as an important addition to library video collections; and as enrichment material for advanced high school curricula.
