About the Author:

Lou Ann Thompson is Professor of English and Rhetoric at Texas Woman's University, where she teaches British Romanticism, creative writing, and courses in film and visual rhetoric as well as a variety of other rhetoric classes. She has published creative work and scholarly articles on a wide variety of topics related to writing, literature, and film. She has taught at seven different universities, and was an editor for the New Mexico Humanities Review.

Review:

"Students seem to enjoy the essays and in-class discussions of them. I attribute this to the reasonable size of the selections and fact that no elevated vocabulary level or specialized knowledge is required to understand them"

"I described (the book) just the other day with great enthusiasm. I was eager to show off the TOC as a way of saying, "Look at all this good stuff I'm using next semester." There is good depth in the range of authors represented and the articles are interesting and varied in subject matter. I pointed out my favorite articles, but was especially eager to show off the chapter on essay exam writing. My colleague agreed that it was interesting and would, no doubt, prove useful to our student population."

"RR is an aptly named text, offering, as it does, an elegant and thoughtfully integrated composition tool, which connects your handbook and your reader in ways that we only ever dreamed of before. It takes some of the guesswork, or at least much of the groundwork, out of setting up a class and lets the instructor and students hit the ground running. There is a broad range of engaging essay resources and the handbook tie-in offers rich opportunities for assignments that shape a broad range of skills for the whole student."

"I would adopt RR because of its appeal to both teacher and student needs-easy, wide usage."
