"Modern American Prose", Third Edition, includes four essays by each of fifteen major American essayists, and one essay by each of fifteen American writers, allowing students to see the range of a writer's work and the creative nature of the essay. Excellent rhetorical apparatus (introductions and questions) provides a means to more analytical and evaluative reading. The broad collection of writers and works gives students an introduction to the nature and power of the essay as a genre, plus a better sense of writers' individual and varied voices.
