The Study of Ivanhoe (Classic Reprint) Book Description:

Excerpt from The Study of Ivanhoe In many novels a certain number of chapters in the beginning are devoted to familiarizing the reader with the conditions under which the action takes place, to the introduction of characters that bear prominent parts, to any antecedent facts essential to an under standing of the narrative; the beginning, or starting point, of the action, also, is usually given in connection with this initial and necessary information. The natural point of division in assign ing the first section for study is always at the close of these introductory chapters. In Ivanhoe, the first natural division includes chapters i. - vi. The study should be directed to the main purposes of the author. Let us discuss in some detail the work thata class in the high school should do in this first section. First, inquire where, geographically, and when, historically, the story opens. From the very beginning, accustom the pupil to the use of the map as if he were following the route of an army; require him to present proof of each statement that he makes, with exact reference to his authorities or to the facts on which he bases his inference.
