Summary

An elegant, thematically arranged reader in the humanities, this book is ideal for integrating the study of the humanities into the composition program. Organized around eight classic, enduring themes, related readings are grouped in each chapter under the headings of philosophy, history, literature, and art - two full-color paintings illustrate the art topic in each chapter. Extensive process-oriented writing and reading apparatus, as well as the variety of the 76 readings - essays, poems, fiction, historical accounts, and primary sources - makes this the most interesting and versatile reader of its kind.
