Al hablar de El libro de los angeles selva de Rudyard Kipling, todos pensamos inmediatamente en Mougli, el niño criado entre lobos que, bajo los angeles tutela del oso Balú, l. a. pantera Baguira y l. a. pitón Ka, llega a ser «el amo» de l. a. selva de Sioni, en l. a. India. Olvidamos con frecuencia que El libro de los angeles selva en realidad son dos: El libro de los angeles selva (1894) y el Segundo libro de l. a. selva (1895); y que no todas sus historias tienen como protagonista a Mougli, ni ocurren siquiera en l. a. India: «La foca blanca» y «Quiquern» están ambientadas en el Ártico; y, en los angeles India, aparte de a Mougli, tenemos a l. a. astuta mangosta Riki-tiki-tavi, a Tuméi −el muchacho al que le es dado presenciar el legendario baile de los elefantes−, al santón Purun, al reportero que conoce los angeles lengua de los animales y es testigo de una reveladora conversación entre las bestias de carga del Ejército de Su Majestad… Cierto es, por otro lado, que el sueño infantil de ser hermano de todos los animales y de verse libre de todas las restricciones humanas está presente en casi todos los cuentos con un poder cautivador.

The Vocabulary from Classical Roots series, also from Educators Publishing Service, is a good follow-up to Wordly Wise. As a matter of fact, most readers (not just those doing remedial work) will find this series a wonderful help in preparing to read classic literature. Each lesson gives several Greek or Latin roots, lists of familiar words using those roots, and lists of unfamiliar words along with exercises in proper use. The five books in the series (A, B, C, D, and E) are all on the same level of difficulty, but they progress from the most familiar roots to those less frequently used.
7 3 o S U S A N W I S E B A U E R There might (debatably) be an idea (sort of) in that last line, but apart from this the passage is loaded with concrete nouns and verbs (and measurements). It certainly isn't necessary for you to read every line from beginning to end, and if you glance over it and identify the main words—30, comfort zone, Dharma and Greg, hit, husband, happily married, mirror, body toned— you can grasp the passage's import without bothering with the little words. But in Aristotle and Austen, the little words are important.
Cannot writers write quicker? "8 This is very close to the "creative journaling" of Personal Journaling. But more often than not, the personal is anchored to some phrase or idea that has struck Forster in his reading. " I recognize an affinity. 9 And Forster's methods of summarizing and evaluating his reading exactly demonstrate the purpose of the classical journal. In 1942, Forster has just finished reading Thomas Hodgkin's Italy and Her Invaders 376-476. His journal entry reads, in part: Why did Rome fall?
