Course Description

Summer 2024 • Grade 4 and above • Literature Sequence

Treasure Island

Stevenson’s Treasure Island is one of the world’s best-known pieces of adventure fiction, but it is also a well-structured piece of literature that can teach and exemplify many of the basic ideas that go into literary analysis. A student who has some of these ideas planted early will come to other literary reading with a greater flexibility of mind and a small but useful vocabulary of analytical terms from which to branch out.
