The authors have created learning material that includes a carefully chosen selection of literary texts, followed by thought-provoking 'in-text" questions designed to contribute to a better understanding of the relationship between literature and history. Texts and Events attempts to be open-ended in its version of the past, encouraging readers to seek knowledge outside the text by analysing other narratives, both fictional and historical, to which they are referred at the end of each chapter. These 'Suggestions for Further Study" expand upon and present alternatives to the narratives offered here. In this way, students are challenged to begin to question the exclusive nature of literary canons, to fill in the gaps of historical narratives, and to realise that neither can ever be complete.
