 General Description:

Ignatius Critical Editions (ICE) Study Guides are constructed to aid the reader of ICE classics to achieve a level of critical and literary appreciation befitting the works themselves. They give introductions and summaries, followed up with in-depth considerations of key critical moments and themes, plus lists of “points to ponder” while reading. Finally, they include questions to test the students’ knowledge of the text and ability to go from that knowledge to wider or higher conclusions about the works and their relation to reality. Ideally suited for students themselves and as a guide for teachers, the ICE Study Guides serve as a complement to the treasures of critical appreciation already included in ICE titles.

"Critical editions that treat great books as though they were a living part of the great tradition. It’s a sad commentary on our times that this should seem an innovation. Still, at least it has allowed Ignatius Press to offer this important series. Students and scholars will be forever grateful."
Joseph Bottum, First Things.

"To step out of the assumptions of one's own time and place; to understand the literary classic with the mind and heart of the author requires such a breadth of understanding and grasp of history and tradition that few publishers attempt it and fewer still succeed at it. Ignatius Critical Editions, edited by Joseph Pearce, has succeeded admirably."
Patrick S.J. Carmack, President, Great Books Academy, Great Books Program, and the Angelicum Academy

"The real battle for America’s soul is not waged in legislative halls but in lecture halls. Congratulations to the courageous souls at Ignatius Press for firing off what is nothing less than a direct hit in the culture war. For too long, the Western Canon has been co-opted by those who, in fact, hate the West and the three things for which she stands: the good, the beautiful, and the true. These magnificent editions, edited by a scholar who loves all three, belong on the shelves of every campus bookstore, every high-school classroom, and every home school."
Christopher Check, Executive Vice President, The Rockford Institute

"The Ignatius Critical Editions are a smart and long overdue response to the literary hijacking of the classics. Three cheers for Joseph Pearce and Ignatius Press!"
Chris Michalski, ISI Books, Imprint of the Intercollegiate Studies Institute

"For many years I've avoided recent "critical" editions, stuffed and padded as they are with political faddists and special interest hacks. What a delight to find an edition of a work of literary art treated with the reverence, the critical tact, and the wonder its beauty and wisdom demand!"
Anthony Esolen, Ph.D.,Professor of Renaissance English, Providence College

This item received 4 stars overall. It Is a Truth Universally Acknowledged that a Good Book is in Need of a Review

As a self-proclaimed Janeite, I was very excited to receive the Ignatius Critical Edition’s Study Guide for Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I had read the novel numerous times before I read this 40-page book and was looking forward to reading the novel while using this guide. I learned very quickly that, just as the book suggested, I would’ve gotten more if I had read the Ignatius Critical Edition of Pride and Prejudice instead of my own Penguin Books version. Despite this small disadvantage, I went ahead and continued to use the version that I owned.
 
The introductions, “Why a Great Books Study Guide?” and “How to Use This Guide,” gave a convincing argument why this book should be used and how it was relevant to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Using examples from Pope Benedict XVI as well as classics such as Hom Full Review...
