Summary:
Contemporary realistic fiction, historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy, mystery, horror -- which is your favorite? Join our hosts as they investigate some of fiction's most popular genres while emphasizing that knowing the genre of a text helps libraries, writers and readers to organize, think about and compare works of literature. The characteristics, common themes and popular subgenres of each genre are highlighted. Students will discover that while some texts clearly fit into one genre or another, others aren't quite so easy to categorize. Many authors create works that weave in elements of multiple genres. By knowing more about fiction's genres, students can predict certain things about a book, connect the book to other works of fiction and develop a deeper understanding of the text.

Only available in the US.
