Summary: Now an established classic in its field, the Seventh Edition of Writing with a Thesis is distinguished by its treatment of the importance of a thesis in creating a quality piece of writing. Ideal for departments in search of a rhetorically-organized reader, Writing with a Thesis provides short, lively, and accessible essays and a direct approach to concepts and ideas that is both extensive and understandable to students.

  • Apparatus for readings include: biographical and contextual headnotes for all professional essays; explanatory footnotes; and post-reading questions for the professional essays - 'What Did the Writer Say and What Did You Think?' and 'How Did the Writer Say It?'
  • 'What about your Writing?' are brief comments following each reading that offer quick, practical pointers and tips to students.
  • Each of the ten student essays include outlines that point out the thesis and arrangement of topics for each paragraph of the essay. less
