La Spiga Readers - Improve your English (C1/C2)

La Spiga Readers - Improve your English (C1/C2)

A series of well-known works by some of the most renowned writers of the English-speaking world. Each text contains a brief introduction designed to outline the life and work of the author and to put the particular work in context. Footnotes are provided, where necessary, to aid comprehension of historical references etc. The text is presented in its complete and unabridged version. The titles selected cover a variety of literary styles and eras, and the books in the series include plays, short stories and novels. The audio CD contains a selection of texts, read by native speakers.

This new series for foreign learners offers a selection of short stories by well-known authors, giving easy access to good quality unabridged literature on a scale calculated to motivate rather than discourage the reader. It uses the original and effective technique of parallel notes; the text on the left-hand page is annotated line by line in simple English on the facing page, allowing the student to find an explanation quickly, whenever required, without the risk of losing the thread of the narrative. Similar series are listed in the French, German and Italian sections of this catalogue.
