ABC-CLIO
Rediscover the classics--and help readers do the same! The Count of Monte Cristo is a rip-roaring adventure. Pride and Prejudice is an endearing romance. Howard Fast's April Morning is fascinating historical fiction and a moving war story. The list goes on. The trick is to find the right book for the reader. Frolund's guide can help. By identifying the genre characteristics of more than 400 classic fiction works, and organizing titles according to those features, it helps readers find the types of books they enjoy; and it helps you promote classics to teen (and adult!) readers. Includes information on hundreds of film and audio versions and other adaptations, a chronology, and a grade-level index. Grade 9 through adult.
Re-discover the classics--and use the genre approach to promote classic literature to readers.

A librarian in Las Vegas, Nevada, Frolund offers school and public librarians who work with young adults an annotated bibliography of classic literary works arranged within genre classifications. She cites fictional works written between 800 BC and 1985 that have transcended the scene of their creation and display multiple levels of meaning, literary merit, and popular appeal.
