Sample of Related History & Literature on Shmoop

  1. A Separate Bildungsroman
    A Separate Peace is a classic example of a bildungsroman—the German word for a coming-of-age story (oftentimes based on the adventures of a protagonist right around, say, your students' age). Check out one of the originals, Charles Dickens's 900-pager David Copperfield.

  2. A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
    So this is what Joyce was up to when he wasn't writing Ulysses. For a Ulysses-lite experience, check out this novel: all the crazy times, half the confusion.
