This four-genre, thematically-arranged collection groups together selections that retell the same story or events: three interpretations of Cinderella from Walt Disney, The Brothers Grimm, and a Chinese folktale, for example, or the myth of Oedipus as told by Sophocles, Rita Dove, Randall Jarrell, and Sigmund Freud. Retellings includes many frequently taught works of fiction, poetry, drama, and non-fiction, as well as visual texts, and offers a complete introduction to reading, interpreting, and writing about literature.
