This title examines the role and theme of the quest archetype in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, The Hunger Games, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight. It features four analysis papers that consider the quest theme, each using different critical lenses, writing techniques, or aspects of the theme. Critical thinking questions, sidebars highlighting and explaining each thesis and argument, and other possible approaches for analysis help students understand the mechanics of essay writing. Features include a glossary, references, websites, source notes, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards.
