Retellings : Thematic Literature Anthology - Text Only - 04 edition

Retellings : Thematic Literature Anthology - Text Only (ISBN10: 0072414693; ISBN13: 9780072414691)
ISBN13: 978-0072414691
ISBN10: 0072414693

Summary: This four-genre, thematically-arranged collection groups together selections that retell the same story or events: three interpretations of Cinderella from Walt Disney, The Brothers Grimm, and a Chinese folktale, for example, or the myth of Oedipus as told by Sophocles, Rita Dove, Randall Jarrell, amd Sigmund Freud. Retellings includes many frequently taught works of fiction, poetry, drama, and non-fiction, as well as visual texts, and offers a complete introduction
to reading, interpreting, and writing about literature.

Features
  • Stories as Themes: Organized around stories retold across cultures and throughout history, Retellings groups fiction, poetry, drama, and essays into thematic chapters entitled Monsters and Heroes, Love and Friendship, Life Passages, and Innocence Lost. Each chapter includes Further Reflections--additional works related to the theme, arranged by genre--and Making Connections--questions about the chapter's theme.
  • Casebooks: Part IV offers in-depth casebooks on Oedipus, Hamlet, and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, going beyond primary retellings to include critical essays, cultural and historical context, and suggested topics for research.
  • Fiction, Poetry, Drama, and Nonfiction: Distinct chapters discuss ways to read short fiction, poetry, drama, essays, and visual texts.
  • Writing About Literature: Part III offers a thorough description of the steps involved in writing about literature, from brainstorming techniques to revising and editing, and includes sample student papers.
  • Four Extensive Appendices: The appendices offer suggested writing assignments that involve work from different themes; guidelines for using and documenting sources; an introduction to the schools of literary criticism; and brief biographies of selected authors.
  • Color Insert: A stunning, full-color insert features visual retellings of written texts.
