Works included in this series have been chosen for their literary and moral merit. Although A Beka Book may or may not endorse the entire contents of each selection or the contents of the work from which it is taken, selections reflect Christian principles with an emphasis on character building and life-enriching themes. Part of the learning process is developing proper discernment according to the truths of the Scripture, realizing that while a Christian may not be able to entirely approve of an author's beliefs, lifestyle, or work, he can appreciate the author's God-given talent. An important part of a well-rounded education is exposure to significant authors and their works.
Selections included in this second volume, Of Places, are intended to increase the student's appreciation of literature and help him develop a love for reading. While this book does include selections from classic literary works, the main goal of the text is to provide enjoyable prose and poetry for student reading rather than to teach in-depth analysis of literature.« less
