Review:

Roberts, Literature, 9/e

 

This new edition of Roberts: An Introduction to Reading and Writing puts the tools you need for writing about literature at your fingertips. During his lengthy career as an educator, Professor Roberts recognized the need for a text that integrates instructional material with an anthology of poetry, fiction, and drama, giving equal attention to both the literary content and the fundamentals of reading and writing critically. Designed on that basis, this collection presents a step-by-step overview of the writing process before moving into chapters focusing on writing about specific literary elements and genres. The textbook reinforces these lessons throughout with appropriate literary works, illustrative student essays, and visual aids. In addition, extensive coverage is given to the research process and to writing research papers about literature. The ninth edition of Literature: An Introduction to Reading and Writing regards the study of literature and the study of writing as mutually instructive and supportive, and its focus on these connections will ensure your development as a critical reader, thinker, and writer.
