The most original and creative literature textbook I have ever seen.
I am most impressed by the promise of meeting students needs in their struggle to move from summarizing to discussing style and technique.
The tone is quite down-to-earth and engaging. I believe students will appreciate that.
Step by step instructions are by far the best rubric I have ever seen for writing a critical essay,brilliant, succinct, essential, and clear.
The selections in this section are extremely well chosen for college freshmen. I believe these selections will capture their interest, expand their vocabulary and jump-start their imagination.
A brilliant, innovative work that truly makes a textual apparatus an all-in-one pedagogical asset. The text s focus on writing as a discovery tool is its greatest quality, followed by the diversity and quantity of readings.
I have never seen this level of instructional specificity in an introductory text before. McGraw Hill Reviewers
