Synopsis:
Writing about Literature serves as a hands-on guide for writing about literature, thus justifying the integration of literature and composition.  The reading of literature encourages students to think, and the use of literary topics gives instructors a viable way to combine writing and literary study.

In this Eighth Edition of Writing About Literature, Roberts has kept and strengthened the features that have brought this textbook such acclaim in previous editions, while bringing other areas of both content and strategy through almost total revision. The text provides comprehensive discussions and sample papers for students who are writing about the elements of literature.
