Summary

Instructors say that composition readers are too expensive and too large. Why should students pay so much for more selections than they will ever have to read in a writing course? 50 Essays: A Portable Anthology directly addresses that concern. With a net price of $16.50 and a total of 50 essays (well below the 60 to 100 essays generally found in other such readers), 50 Essays offers plenty of material for a wide variety of classroom uses. The carefully chosen table of contents presents enough familiarity to assure instructors, enough novelty to keep things interesting, and enough variety to accommodate many different teaching needs. The editorial apparatus -- headnotes, questions, alternative contents, and a glossary -- has been designed to support that variety of needs without being intrusive.
