Summary: Literature for Compositionis based on the assumption that students in composition or literature courses should encounter first-rate writing-not simply competent prose but the powerful reports of experience that have been recorded by highly skilled writers of the past and present, reports of experiences that must be shared. Our view is not original. A thousand years ago in Japan, Lady Murasaki (978?-1026) wrote a scene inThe Tale of Genjiin which some of her characters talk about read
ing fiction, and one of them offers his opinion as to why an author writes: Again and again writers find something in their experience, or see something in the life around them, that seems so important they cannot bear to let it pass into oblivion. There must never come a time, the writer feels, when people do not know about this. We assume that you share our belief that the study of such writing offers pleasure and insight into life and also leads to increased skill in communicating.
