From the Back Cover:

Caution:  the book you hold in your hands could change your life.

 

For almost fifty years, Introduction to Literature has been stirring up classroom discussion and providing topics for stimulating dinnertime conversation. 

 

Revised and refined over the course of fifteen editions, this ever-new bestselling anthology introduces you to classic and contemporary poems, stories, and plays.  Prepare to meet unforgettable characters, and to explore one of the world’s greatest frontiers — literature.  This book meets Franz Kafka’s standard:  “A book must be the ax for the frozen sea within us.” 

 

Throughout Introduction to Literature, you’ll find plenty of student papers to get you thinking about how you can make the most of your own assignments.  You can easily find help in three sections called “Students Writing about Stories,” “Students Writing about Poems,” and “Students Writing about Plays.”  

 

 

New to This Edition:

 

  • More sample student essays and writing prompts to help you with assignments, from start to finish.
  • New Chapter One focuses on the “how-to” of writing and gives you a clear and simple snapshot of the overall process.
  • Several chapters devoted specifically to your writing skills–broken down by genre (how to write about fiction, how to write about poetry, how to write about drama)
  • Strong representation of multicultural authors adds depth and breath to your reading experience--which is to say, to your life.
