The Vocabulary of Literature

This book is available for download with Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device. Multi-touch books can be read with Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device. Books with interactive features may work best on an iOS device. Apple Books on your Mac requires OS X 10.9 or later.


The ten chapters in The Vocabulary of Literature feature examples of the most frequently used words in the classics of American and English literature. Each lesson presents ten new classic words and ten words from Caesar’s English I and Caesar’s English II so students have 200 powerful words to learn and use. These words were not chosen arbitrarily just for the purpose of a textbook. They are the words most frequently used in classic literature as identified by author Michael Clay Thompson’s meticulous research and database. The aim is to help students to internalize these words and to pave a path to a lifetime’s enjoyment and love of great literature.

Interactive exercises include classic word challenges, 4-level analysis, classic word muddles, reviews, and self-check quizzes. Each chapter includes creative readings, biographies, and photographs of famous authors. 

The principal authors featured are Jack London, Jane Austen, Stephen Crane, Mary Shelley, Frederick Douglass, Henry David Thoreau, Rachel Carson, Mark Twain, Charles Dickens, and George Eliot.
