Summary: Thinking and Writing about Literature puts writing first, with instruction that emphasizes the process students need to go through to write successful academic papers. Part One, Literature and the Writing Process, is a free-standing writing about literature text covering every step of the writing process, including how to use critical strategies and write from sources. Writing in Process Casebooks conclude all 13 chapters in the book, demystifying the s ...show moreteps students need to follow when thinking and writing about literature--and offering comprehensive, practical coverage and excellent models of the kinds of writing students will most likely be asked to do.

A comprehensive 4-genre introduction to literature gives students the tools they need to analyze and write about distinct literary forms. Part Two, Literature and Its Elements, introduces students to key elements of fiction, poetry, drama, and the essay, helping them critically read, think, and write about each specific genre. The discussion of literary elements is complemented by examples from a rich and wide variety of works that illustrate the traditions and conventions of literary art.

A thematic anthology provides motivating points of departure for student writers. Part Three, Literature and Life, is a thematic anthology organized around 5 enduring themes that students will want to write about: Home and Family, Love and Its Complications, Lessons from Life, The Natural and Unnatural, and Culture and Identity. A well-balanced range of selections -- 41 stories, 153 poems, 12 plays, and 17 essays -- includes both classic and contemporary examples of each genre, from Shakespeare and Dickinson to Alice Munro and David Henry Hwang - all readable, all teachable.

This latest offering from Michael Meyer, editor of The Bedford Introduction to Literature and The Compact Bedford Introduction to Literature, is built on many of the same features that have made these three-genre introductions best-sellers-- accessible and practical explanations of the writing process and the elements of literature, well-chosen examples, literary selections that students will truly enjoy reading and writing about, practical coverage of critical theory, and thorough editorial apparatus. These trademark Meyer features make this new literature for composition book a time-tested text. ...show less
