Kötelezők ​röviden I. Ismeretlen szerző

Ismeretlen szerző - Kötelezők ​röviden I.
Gyakran ​előfordul, hogy már elolvasott, de időközben elfeledett művekre vagyunk kíváncsiak, egy-egy részletre már nem emlékszünk. Mi volt Kreón kegyetlen parancsa? Kinek udvarolt Romeo Capuleték bálja előtt? Mi okozza Lear tragédiáját? Időnként persze újra elővesszük a régről ismert műveket, de bizonyára hasznos segítség lesz az emlékezet felfrissítésére ez a gyűjtemény is. Kötetünkben a középiskolai törzsanyaghoz tartozó olvasmányok tartalmi kivonatait találhatja meg az olvasó. (Ebbe a kötetbe a középiskola I. osztályban tárgyalt művek kerültek.) Nem csupán a kötelező regények, hanem színdarabok, nagyobb terjedelmű novellák is helyet kaptak benne. A világ- és a magyar irodalom alapművei szerepelnek itt, dióhéjban. Kötetünk persze nem pótolja az eredeti műveket. Nem le-, hanem rászoktatni szeretnénk az olvasásra. A rövidítés többnyire csak a cselekményvázlatot mondhatja fel, törekedtünk azonban arra, hogy az epikus alkotások hangulata megmaradjon, csak kurtítottunk a szövegen. Reményeink szerint haszonnal forgathatja ezt a könyvet minden diák, öregdiák és talán még a tanárok is.

Kötelezők ​röviden III. Ismeretlen szerző

Ismeretlen szerző - Kötelezők ​röviden III.
Sokszor, ​ha meghallunk egy ismerős címet, s hirtelen megpróbáljuk felidézni a szereplők nevét, a cselekményt (Miért nem tudott kibújni egy reggel az ágyából Gregor Samsa utazó ügynök? Milyen furcsa idegennel találkozott egy tikkasztó, meleg nyári délután Berlioz, a TÖMEGIR-nek a vezetője és fiatal költő? Hogyan vetett véget Tóth Lajos a dobozolásnak?), bizony korántsem biztos, hogy e kérdésekre rögtön tudjuk a választ. A kötelezők röviden segít memóriánk felfrissítésében, hiszen mindannyiunk közös, kedvenc élményei e művek. Jólesik néha szemelgetni köztük, s talán kedvet kapunk az újraolvasásra is. E kötetben a középiskola negyedik osztályának törzsanyagát képező műveit tárgyaljuk, a világ – és magyar irodalom klasszikus darabjainak tartalmi összefoglalását veheti kezébe az olvasó. A könnyebb eligazodás kedvéért nemcsak a drámai művek szereplőinek nevét gyűjtöttük ki az ismertetések elé, hanem minden epikus mű főbb szereplőit is. E kötetet nem lusta diákok kézikönyvének szántuk, hiszen a tartalom ismertetése nem adja vissza a mű varázsát, nem pótolhatja az olvasás által nyújtott élményeket, viszont segítséget nyújthat egy alaposabb, precízebb elemzéshez, áttekintéshez. Ezért ajánljuk vén diákoknak, szülőknek, s talán tanároknak is!

Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the pre-20th century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. "Penguin Readers" are graded at seven levels of difficulty, from "Easystarts" with a 200-word vocabulary, to Level 6 (Advanced) with a 3000-word vocabulary. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of enjoyable exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing. Some titles in the series are available with an accompanying audio cassette, or in a book and cassette pack. Additionally, selected titles have free accompanying "Penguin Readers Factsheets" which provide stimulating exercise material for students, as well as suggestions for teachers on how to exploit the Readers in class.
