To relate this material to students' writing needs, each chapter concludes with guides to writing about the topic, followed by a sample essay, a brief analysis of that sample, and a list of special writing topics. Principles are illustrated by references to the twenty-nine stories, poems, and plays included throughout the book and in a special appendix.
