The first three-genre introduction to literature text to address the changing canon is now the first to include a comprehensive guide for writing about literature-with full coverage of critical thinking, argument, and the writing process. Teachers themselves, Kirszner & Mandell take students through each step of the research and writing process, helping them to craft literary analyses and arguments and to understand that writing about literature is a process of discovery, examination, and debate. Combining the broadest selection of literature available with time-proven and class-tested instruction, LITERATURE: READING, REACTING, WRITING, Sixth Edition, remains the most useful and student-friendly introduction to literature text available.

About the Author:

Laurie G. Kirszner is a bestselling author who is well known nationally. Kirszner, together with coauthor Stephen R. Mandell, has written bestsellers for nearly every English market. They have the deepest publishing record of any handbook author team and have successfully published up and down the curriculum from developmental to literature.

Review:

"Over the past 15 years, I have used most of the anthologies. However, yours is by far the best."

"The factor that most influenced the selection of LRRW was its wide selection of all three genres."

"I prefer the selections in Kirszner and Mandell's LITERATURE: READING, REACTING, WRITING. The selections will provide endless opportunities and inspirations for students to find their own voices within larger critical, global, and literary contexts."

"I was rather impressed with some of the selections in the short story section, in that the editors seem to be paying a bit more attention to current writers and offering a broader range of cultures."

"The three most appealing characteristics of the book are: the Reading and Reacting Questions in every section, the fiction casebook, and the writing checklists."
