9780130814302: Writing About Literature (9th Edition)

Covering a wide range of literary topics, this classic textbook utilizes a process approach to writing that includes readings and sample essays. Each chapter begins with a discussion of an important literary topic - such as character, setting, and point of view. 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.
