9780393937558: Writing About American Literature

A clear, concise guide to the process of writing about literature.

Writing About American Literature, the latest addition to Karen Gocsik’s popular “Writing About” series, is an accessible, step-by-step guide to writing about literature, from active reading to final revisions. The only writing guide created with American literature students in mind, this new text understands that active reading is the first step toward producing quality assignments, and sections devoted to reading analytically and interrogating sources provide students with this essential foundation. Tips on reading critically and creatively, generating ideas, narrowing a topic, constructing a thesis, structuring an argument, and revising lead students through the entire arc of the writing process.
