    This literature book has a wealth of knowledge for creative writers. This book is a goldmine regarding literature and how it impacts on structure, sound and sense. I really enjoyed the section on poetry. It covers the elements of poetry in an excellent fashion. One is able to get an enhanced understanding of literature and the various aspects of such a dynamic subject, regarding poetry, fiction and non-fiction. The selected pieces in the book are easily read, and are packed with images. Get ready to read a great literature book and be prepared for an accelerated boost in the world of literature. This is also a great reference book for future use.
