Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
For Introduction to Literature courses and Freshman Composition courses that emphasize writing about literature. Message: Roberts has the best coverage of writing about literature. Complete coverage of writing about each element and a total of 23 student essays with accompanying commentary ensure student comprehension of writing about literature and therefore, produce better student papers. Literature: An Introduction to Reading and Writing, Compact Edition is founded on the principles of writing about literature. It is not an afterthought and it is not treated as a separate chapter or appendix; but rather, it is the carefully integrated philosophy of Professor Roberts' approach to teaching literature and composition. In addition to his own contributions to the book, Professor Roberts has also made innumerable changes and improvements based on both student questions and student writing as well as from professor feedback. To this day, each new edition is revised and perfected based on professor and student needs to meet the changing needs of today's students.

Review:

This second compact edition of the best-selling Literature: An Introduction to Reading and Writing by Edgar V. Roberts and Henry E. Jacobs retains all of the features of the original text. Like the sixth full edition upon which it is based, it is dedicated throughout to the interlocking processes of reading and writing. In addition to carefully chosen literary selections, each chapter contains detailed information about the process of writing about literature, with hundreds of thought-provoking questions and sample essays.
