The Well Educated Mind/ Part Two/ Chapter 5/ The Story of People.
Part II focuses on engaging actual material, it is categorized by: novel, history, autobiography, play, and poetry. Chapter five, begins with the novel. First off, as it will be done on the following chapters of part two as well, we are given facts about the history of the of such (the novel), and it provides thorough, well intended information as to its application, whatever controversy it spitted, and any relevant comparisons that can be made. Each of the chapters on part two contain the same certain sections that help one and guide one to classical reading, these sections follow the subheading "How to" which varies depending on the subject in hand, in which case, speaking of the novel, the subheading would read: "How to Read a Novel". In any case, the matter of the novel is explained by its influence i.e. its history, the manner in which it is written the consequences of it, and I must add that a specific comparison to romantic novels is made, a distinction between them, that clears out any confusion. The subheading is also split into three levels of reading, levels that may vary depending on the subject in hand. Another characteristic one will find on these chapters of part two is the extensive list of books given at the end, each pertaining to their specific subject as well.
