八月新書預告!! Gateway to Western Literature


從古至今,西方的藝術、文學、哲學,甚至建築,源頭總可以追溯至希臘羅馬神話故事與聖經,也因此閱讀神話和聖經故事,將能幫助讀者更了解這些藝術的典故與內涵。
本書包括希臘神話與聖經故事兩大部分。希臘神話是從奧林帕斯眾神的故事到荷馬史詩,再進入希臘悲劇的世界中。接下來則將讀到在聖經中,上帝是如何創造世界、以色列人回到應許之地的旅程、人與神的對話,以及耶穌的生命歷程。原文以清晰簡潔的英文介紹作注,讀者不僅能享受神話與聖經的古典文學之美,更能藉由文本一窺當時的歷史與人文概況。
每篇都以Before the Text 開始,簡單介紹此篇的大綱,並且包括主要角色介紹、作者簡介。Word Bank中列出此篇的重要單字,不僅對閱讀文本有幫助,也能在生活中應用;Study Question則提出本篇的重點問題,讓讀者延伸討論內容,發展自己的想法。藉由這些元素,教師也能引導學生進入神話與聖經文學有趣且迷人的世界,領會閱讀古典文學的樂趣與喜悅。
