This title examines the role and theme of Biblical allusions in The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Matrix, Lord of the Flies, and The Lion King. It features four analysis papers that consider Biblical allusions, 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.
