  • Prose and Poetry: From Virgil to Shakespeare and Edith Wharton to Ernest Hemmingway, literature will come alive again in these pages.
  • Math and Science: Quotients, dividends, phalanges, and protons...do these long-forgotten words take you back to high school days?
  • Our Changing World: Do you know that Myanmar was formerly Burma and Namibia was formerly West Africa?
  • History: From early global explorations to current international conflicts, you'll relearn names and dates you once knew by heart.
