With engaging selections, a strong emphasis on the writing process, and a visually appealing design, this thematically arranged literature anthology is sure to capture readers' attention. The first five chapters offer comprehensive coverage of reading and writing including a highly praised Chapter 4: "Interpretation, Evaluation, and Argument" giving readers the detailed guidance and the confidence they need to write strong essays. The anthology section is organized around five themes Family and Friends, Women and Men, Heritage and Identity, Culture and Class, and Faith and Doubt. Each theme contains a theme-opening photo, "Dialogue across History" which contain compelling quotes from famous and not-so-famous writers, and "Case Studies in Composition" which focus on a different aspect of interpretation in each theme. Most authors are represented by a photo to help readers connect to the humanity of the authors. For anyone interested in literature.
