From the Publisher:

The text discusses clearly and succinctly how to write about the elements of literature. In the new Brief Eighth Edition of Writing About Literature, Roberts has kept and strengthened the features which have brought this textbook such acclaim in previous editions, while bringing other areas of both content and strategy through almost total revision.

From the Back Cover:

Students who write about what they read learn twice, for as they plan and develop their writing, they necessarily grow as thinkers.

This book provides comprehensive discussions and sample papers for students who are writing about the elements of literature. All chapters contain discussions of important literary subjects—such as character, setting, and symbolism—followed by a guide to the necessary steps for students to produce good essays. This accessible text is a perfect companion for any course that wants to focus on strengthening writing skills.

We are delighted to offer select Penguin Putnam titles at a substantial discount to your students when you request a special package of one or more Penguin titles with any Prentice I fall text. Contact your Prentice Hall sales representative for special ordering instructions.

Book Description Pearson Education (US), United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 13th Revised edition. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Appropriate for any college course or advanced placement course that emphasizes writing about literature. Writing about Literature serves as a hands-on guide for writing about literature, thus reinforcing the integration of literature and composition. Reading literature encourages students to think and using literary topics gives instructors an effective way to combine writing and literary study. Story: When Ed Roberts first wrote Writing about Literature many years ago, he was responding to a direct need in his classroom. He realized that there was a direct connection between the way he prepared his assignments and the quality of student work he received. The more he described to his students what he wanted, and the longer he explained things, the better the final essays turned out to be. That s when he started to write and hand out directions, thus saving valuable classroom time. He tried and tested each assignment in a number of separate classes, and he has made innumerable changes and improvements based on both student questions and student writing. To this day, each new edition is revised and tweaked based on professors and students needs. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780205230310
