Grammar Voyage: Student Book Cover

Grammar Voyage is designed to build on the foundations established in Grammar Island and Grammar Town, both in terms of the four-level analysis and visually. It reinforces the vocabulary of Caesar's English II and the poetics of A World of Poetry, as well as the spirit and intellectual demands of Essay Voyage. The ship paintings offer a beautiful counterpoint to Michael Clay Thompson's lovely color illustrations of grammar concepts.

We recommend getting both the student book and the teacher manual for Grammar Voyage, as there are too many places where the teacher manual gives away the answers to questions and exercises.

Essay Voyage: Student Book Cover

Essay Voyage explicates the elements of the correct, formal essay—the essay expected for exams, research papers, critical responses, and other formal analyses of academic subjects. With the use of extensive examples and thorough explanation, children see that formal writing involves the correct use of words, sentences, paragraphs, punctuation, and other elements such as organized structure and unity.

The book has a journeying theme that takes readers around the world. Each chapter is followed by exercises, challenging questions, examples of good essays, and a discussion of the correct use of words taken from Caesar’s English II.

Ideally, this text should be used in conjunction with Grammar Voyage, Caesar’s English IIand A World of Poetry.

We recommend that you purchase both the student book and the teacher manual to teach this book effectively.

Note: This is a second edition of this book. It reflects the current MLA guidelines, which are substantially changed from those that were in existence when the first edition was written. As a result of those changes, the information in the first edition is now wrong, and no one should continue to use the first edition.

A World of Poetry: Student Book Cover

A World of Poetry builds on the first two books in the MCT poetics program but goes even further into the details of good poetry. This volume is built on comparisons of poetic and scientific observations of nature and the world around us. As with the other poetics books, the design of this book has been meticulously attended to so that it highlights the points in the text with beautiful and interesting visuals.

Among the featured topics are alliteration, assonance, consonance, end-stopped versus enjambed lines, end rhyme, rhyme scheme, internal rhyme, eye-rhyme, near rhyme, poetic feet, iambs, trochees, dactyls, spondees, amphibrachs, amphimacers, pyrrhics, Shakespearan sonnets, Petrarchan sonnets, ballads, rime royal, limericks, haiku, similes, metaphors, personification, apostrophes, and the grammar of poetry. 

There are many poems in the book that illustrate the poetic elements discussed, including ones by T.S. Eliot, Walt Whitman, Christina Rossetti, Gerard Manley Hopkins, A.E. Houseman, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Emily Dickinson, Sara Teasdale, Anne Sexton, Thomas Hardy, Edgar Allen Poe, William Butler Yeats, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Matthew Arnold, Emma Lazarus, Sylvia Plath, and Basho Matsuo.

A World of Poetry, like the poetics books that lead up to it (The Music of the Hemispheres and Building Poems) allows students to see that the common stereotypes about poetry—that it is comprised only of pretty poems for girls—are unfounded. This text can be used as a stand-alone introduction to poetry or as a foundation for more advanced study in poetics.

Note: New to the second edition of this book are QR codes that link to audio of Michael Clay Thompson himself reading the poems in the book.
