Summary: FEATURES
  • An extraordinarily wide and well-balanced selection of literature. The 63 stories, 415 poems, and 19 plays represent an impressive diversity of periods, nationalities, styles, and voices--from the serious to the humorous and from the traditional to the contemporary--with the best in-depth coverage of major writers of any such anthology.
  • The richest array of options for teaching and lear
    ning about literature. In addition to its widely praised chapters that clearly explain and exemplify the traditional literary elements are unique chapters showing how the elements work together. The book also features three kinds of Case Studies that illuminate literary works for students through (1) vivid cultural documents and images, (2) provocative critical perspectives, and (3) explorations of universal themes.
  • Comprehensive treatment of writing about literature--with the most opportunities to practice it. Seven chapters discuss every step of the writing process, including the process of writing from research, while 14 sample student papers model the results. More than 2,000 questions and assignments--Considerations for Critical Thinking and Writing, Connections questions, and Suggested Topics for Longer Papers--offer more occasions for writing than any other comparable anthology. Throughout, unique Creative Response questions tap into students' imaginations and let them try their hands as creative writers.
