A PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION
The Annotated Edition includes the full, unabridged text of Charlotte Mason’s original Volume. All her words and wisdom have been retained while, at the same time, certain updates have been made for you, the modern reader.
THE ANNOTATED EDITION OF VOLUME 6 FEATURES:
- The text has been updated with a modern font that is easier to read.
- American spellings, not British, are used throughout.
- The original page numbers, as published in earlier editions of Charlotte’s volumes, are in the margins so you can easily cross-reference other editions or study guides.
- Annotations have been added.
The annotations provide context to help you better understand Charlotte’s frequent references to the people, events, and culture of her time. The annotations also define obscure vocabulary and phrases.
For ease of reading, Charlotte’s text is in the inner column and The Plenary annotations are in the outer column.
Charlotte wrote her six volumes of the Home Education Series from 1885-1921. Her frequent references can leave today’s reader a bit frustrated, as she assumed that her readers would understand the context for each person, event, or book that she mentions. Without that context, the wisdom of her words can seem veiled and inaccessible for many readers.
My goal in adding annotations is to highlight Charlotte’s text and make it easier to read so that you gain a deeper understanding of her words and meaning. Once you understand the references and the context, it is like the “a-ha” moment or the key to unlocking the gate. You are no longer bogged down with unfamiliar terminology and references. The words soar.
However, in keeping with Charlotte’s principles, I did not think it correct to interpret her words, so you will not find any opinions or speculations as to her meanings. I want you to make your own connections with her writing; to make the connections that are personal and meaningful to you. As with living books and narration, what you connect with may be different than what I might connect with, and that is the beauty of Charlotte’s method. It is personal to you.
