The texts are gathered around five themes: The Dark Side of the Human Mind, Alienation and Loneliness, Male or Female, A Thing of Beauty and Good or Evil. Each theme is connected to different time periods because each period has had its own approach to the subject.In Streams in Literature you will find short stories, extracts from novels, poems and lyrics.
