Using YA Novels to Build Interest in Classical Themes and Writings

As I’ve said before, I really love integrating Young Adult novels into my classes; either as a group novel or as assigned independent reading.

Χωρίς προστάτη

Είχε ζήσει και το δράμα ενός γνωστού του γλύπτη, που ζούσε μ’ ένα μοντέλο του – μια όμορφη κοπελιά. Της είχε κάνει και το άγαλμα: <<Η αγία των αγίων>> – μια αγία ολόγυμνη, πού είχε σκανδαλίσει τους θρησκευόμενους. Ώσπου ένα Σαββατοκύριακο του είπε ότι θα πήγαινε στη Θήβα, απ’ όπου καταγόταν, σε μια άρρωστη θεία. Σκοτώθηκε σε τροχαίο μ’ έναν εραστή. Κι όταν ο γλύπτης – που κάτι είχε ψυλλιαστεί – το έμαθε, δεν ήξερε αν έπρεπε να λυπηθεί ή να αγανακτήσει που τον κεράτωνε – άγια γυναίκα.
