The Awakening by Kate Chopin
The hostility that greeted The Awakening when it was first published caught Kate Chopin by surprise. Her novel, which illustrates the psychological and sexual awakening of a New Orleans woman at the turn of the century, was before its time and fell into obscurity. Now considered a milestone in American literature, its depiction of a culturally enslaved woman coming to consciousness is timely. The BookWorm edition of Kate Chopin's novel is the most complete version ever published. It includes not only the full text, interpretations, historical and biographical backgrounds, but also a generous sampling of illustrations depicting the New Orleans of that time.
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Little Women is without a doubt the most popular story ever written about girls and for girls. Indeed, many boys have even peered into its pages. The most complete analysis ever done of Alcott's popular masterpiece, the BookWorm version is derived from Alcott's original manuscripts and follows her initial intention, which was to write a story that by-passed the traditional Victorian impulses toward sentimentality and self-representation. Along with a fascinating text history topic that discusses the changes she made in the story line, this edition is full of splendid illustrations and annotations that bring the work to life. Teachers and students alike will come away knowing the author and her time as they never dreamed possible.
