Summary: For Introduction to Literature courses and Freshman Composition courses that emphasize writing about literature.

Roberts delivers the best coverage of writing about literature. Complete coverage of writing about fiction, poetry, and drama and a total of 34 student essays with accompanying commentary ensure student comprehension of writing about literature, which helps students produce better papers.

Edgar Roberts was inspired to create his first b ...show moreook--Writing about Literature--as a direct result of his experiences in the college classroom. Professor Roberts noticed that there was a clear correlation between the level of detail he provided when explaining his class assignments and the quality of work he received from his students the more class time he devoted to describing what he wanted, the better the final essays turned out to be. As a result of this observation, Roberts created his successful text Writing about Literature to fill this need in literature and composition classrooms everywhere.

Soon afterwards, Roberts realized that literature classrooms needed both the instruction provided in Writing about Literature and an anthology to meet the needs of a course based around that text. This led him to create Literature An Introduction to Reading and Writing. This volume contains classroom-tested selections in the areas of fiction, poetry, and drama, with analysis of each. Additionally, Roberts provides explanatory material in all relevant subject areas drawn from his years of experience teaching literature.
