Mail and Female: Epistolary Narrative and Desire in Ovid's Heroides (repost)

Mail and Female: Epistolary Narrative and Desire in Ovid's Heroides By Sara H. Lindheim
English | 2003 | 240 Pages | ISBN: 0299192644 | PDF | 16 MB

In the Heroides, the Roman poet Ovid wittily plucks fifteen abandoned heroines from ancient myth and literature and creates the fiction that each woman writes a letter to the hero who left her behind. But in giving voice to these heroines, is Ovid writing like a woman, or writing "Woman" like a man?
Adventures in Fantasy: Lessons and Activities in Narrative and Descriptive Writing, Grades 5-9

John Gust Adventures in Fantasy: Lessons and Activities in Narrative and Descriptive Writing, Grades 5-9
Jossey-Bass | 2007 | ISBN: 0787992909 | 272 pages | PDF | 5,1 MB

Adventures in Fantasy offers an exciting approach to teaching narrative and descriptive writing that stimulates a student’s creativity and imagination. Filled with mini-lessons, reading projects, and hands-on writing activities, the book shows teachers step-by-step how to introduce students to the “magic” of creating a complete story in the fantasy/adventure genre.
Before fleshing out their stories, however, students are asked to construct actual maps of their ‘fantasyland’ – and then to write a travelogue describing the setting in vivid detail. This initial fantasizing encourages students to be wildly inventive in creating the drama, ogres, villains, heroes and heroines featured in their story, and on the way they learn about the mythic journey.
