About the series (from the Publisher): Elements of Literature, Grades 7-12, offers a combination of fine literature and creative instruction to spark students' interest and imagination. Every level offers a core of classic literature, enriched and expanded with the best of contemporary selections. Elements of Literature introduces students to the literature that has shaped the minds--and hearts-- of generations: Homer's Odyssey, the Book of Ruth, Romeo and Juliet, Don Quixote, Walden, and poetry of John Keats, Emily Dickinson, and Langston Hughes. Here, too, are many fresh, new, or rarely anthologized selections: · Tim O'Brien's award-winning stories about Vietnam · Andrea Lee's account of growing up black in the sixties · the lively stories of Sandra Cisneros · poems by John Haines and Julia Alvarez
