Telltale: 11 Stories | A Study Companion
Author: Dennis Yeo
Format: Paperback 119 pages
For Secondary School Students
Besides their rich heritage, canonical texts are selected for study because of the wealth of available critical study and research materials. Telltale: Eleven Stories, however, being a newly prescribed O-level Singaporean text, does not enjoy such an advantage. This Study Companion attempts to address the gap. The Study Companion is written not just for students, but for all readers who enjoy the stimulating exchange of thoughts and ideas, as well as the imaginative connect between fiction and reality that comprises the study of Literature. We also hope it will provide a platform for deeper insight into and uderstanding of the stories’ literary merits.
