9780131540569: Writing About Literature (Brief)

Writing about Literature serves as a hands-on guide for writing about literature, thus justifying the integration of literature and composition.  The reading of literature encourages students to think, and the use of literary topics gives instructors a viable way to combine writing and literary study.

From the Publisher:

The text discusses clearly and succinctly how to write about the elements of literature. In the new Brief Eighth Edition of Writing About Literature, Roberts has kept and strengthened the features which have brought this textbook such acclaim in previous editions, while bringing other areas of both content and strategy through almost total revision.

From the Back Cover:

Students who write about what they read learn twice, for as they plan and develop their writing, they necessarily grow as thinkers.

This book provides comprehensive discussions and sample papers for students who are writing about the elements of literature. All chapters contain discussions of important literary subjects—such as character, setting, and symbolism—followed by a guide to the necessary steps for students to produce good essays. This accessible text is a perfect companion for any course that wants to focus on strengthening writing skills.

We are delighted to offer select Penguin Putnam titles at a substantial discount to your students when you request a special package of one or more Penguin titles with any Prentice I fall text. Contact your Prentice Hall sales representative for special ordering instructions.
