From the Back Cover:

Literature Across Cultures, 5e

Sheena Gillespie/Anthony P. Pipolo/Terezinha Fonseca



This thematic introduction to literature anthology distinguishes itself by including both classical and contemporary writers, writers from the British and American tradition, ethnic writers from the United States, and writers from other cultures.  Now in its fifth edition, Literature Across Cultures focuses on the political and multicultural aspects of literary works in relation to self and society, gender and identity, war and violence as well as issues of class, sexuality, race, and ethnicity.


·    The revised introductory unit, Reading and Writing as a Social Act, provides strategies for reading closely while encouraging students to see themselves as members of a literary community.

·    New discussion questions follow each short story, play, and cluster of poems to assist students in making informed responses to the reading selections, suggesting multiple possibilities for the production of meaning.

·    Film Angles at the end of each unit demonstrate the continuity between literature and film as well as the ways in which films have shaped cultural attitudes towards the subjects dealt with in the literature.

·    New material in Part One reflects an emphasis on “coming of age” and “rites of passage.”  There is also a section on terrorism and its influence worldwide.

·    Journal entries provide students with an interactive approach to literature and culture, emphasizing students' personal and critical responses to the literature (Units 1-5).
