Learning the English language without due respect to its cultural roots is almost impossible. All languages in the world have been developed and still continue to develop through the literature traditions closely related to the customs of an originating country. It is a fact. People learn about each other, their history and lifestyle via their spiritual envoys like writers, poets, playwrights, etc. Our experience of teaching English revealed the necessity of introducing at least the basics from the literature of the English speaking countries, and it may open ability to debate in English as well as to develop skills of analytic thinking. The book does not include original texts from the most famous authors from Britain and America, but covers most necessary information like biography of an author, summary of his masterpiece, critical analysis and focus questions for further references and discussions. Preparing the book we were well aware that students who learn English as a foreign or a second language are much limited in time and resources and the book comes as a handy guide to the rescue. We also refer this book to teachers who can use it to build up a successful lesson in literature classes through discussions raising general awareness of the Western literature.
