From the Publisher:

Designed to introduce students to the formal study of literature, this anthology presents a generous selection of works in fiction, poetry, and drama -- along with a flexible apparatus that doesn't lock instructors into a specific theoretical approach or syllabus. Richly varied in content, it features classic and contemporary works that represent a range of voices and styles -- and that reflect the cultural diversity that is characteristic of American society -- with balanced representation of women and minorities. The anthology is structured to help students develop a sharp critical appreciation of the readings and a method of analyzing literature that translates easily from text to text and to other theories and approaches. The individual short stories, poems, and plays are presented without editorial interpretation or commentary -- but each genre section features a substantive introduction to the specific genre and a discussion of the appropriate literary elements.
