Summary

The smallest and most economical member of the Kennedy/Gioia family,Backpack Literature is a brief paperback version of the discipline's most popular introduction to literature anthology. Like its bigger, bestselling predecessors,Backpack Literaturefeatures the authors' collective poetic voice which brings personal warmth and a human perspective to the discussion of literature, adding to students' interest in the readings. New selections have been added including four new one-act plays to help ''ease'' students into the study of this genre. The new plays include two comedies-- David Ives's,Sure Thingand Jane Martin'sBeauty-as well as Terrence McNally's poignantAndre's Motherand Edward Bok Lee's experimental dramaEl Santo Americano.
