Overview

Literature: Reading, Reacting, Writing / Edition 4

The first three-genre introduction to literature text to address the changing canon, Literature: Reading, Reacting, Writing, Sixth Edition, is now the first to include a comprehensive "Guide to Writing about Literature," with extensive coverage of critical thinking and argument. Placed at the beginning of the book, the guide provides readers with eight chapters of Kirszner & Mandell's celebrated writing coverage. These chapters help readers craft cogent literary arguments and understand that writing about literature is a process of discovering, examining, and debating ideas. Combining the broadest selection of literature available with time-proven and class-tested instruction, Literature: Reading, Reacting, Writing, Sixth Edition, remains the most responsive introduction to literature text available.
