For courses in Literature for Composition, Writing About Literature, and Introduction to Literature. This version of Literature for Composition has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)* The definitive source for composition and introduction to literature courses With an emphasis on critical thinking and argument, Literature for Composition offers superior coverage of reading, writing, and arguing about literature along with an anthology organized around eight thought-provoking themes. Throughout, the authors demonstrate that the skills emphasized in their discussions of communication are relevant not only to literature courses, but to all courses in which students analyze texts or write arguments. * The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the "increasing mobility of texts," MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.

This innovative thematic anthology helps students make connections among works of literature from different eras and cultures; works of literature and life experiences; works of literature and works of art, as well as other visual images; and different genres and themes. With more than 150 literary selections, Connections presents a diverse mix of classic, modern, and contemporary voices spanning cultures and genres. Arranged around six timely and timeless themes, the selections are relevant and thought provoking to students. Collectively these thematic clusters form a coherent, yet flexible, "Literary Exploration of Human Nature," including: (1) obedience and rebellion; (2) love and lust; (3) honesty and deception; (4) vengeance and forgiveness; (5) industry and indulgence; and (6) greed, gluttony, and generosity. Each of the six thematic sections concludes by focusing on "Common Characters" that students will recognize: Icarus, Don Juan, the Trickster, the Prodigal Son, the Rags-to-Riches Figure, and the Gambler.

Discovering the Many Worlds of Literatureis a new literature for composition text organized by theme, with readings from four genres (essays, short fiction, poems, and dramatic works) from around the world. “The range, quality, and freshness of this text's readings astonish me..This text has the finest range of readings..that I have seen in 25 years of teaching”—Dr. Will Tomory, Southwestern Michigan College. Two introductory chapters on reading and writing about literature lead into seven chapters on the theme of human development, from family and cultural ties through considerations of class, race, and ethnicity, to the spiritual dimension of human life. Each thematic chapter is preceded by a brief introduction to the theme, and each chapter concludes with “Connections,” questions that help students to see connections between different works in different genres, and “Filmography,” an annotated list of suggested films. Each reading is followed by a set of questions to help students analyze the text, understand the author's techniques, and develop an interpretation of the work. The text emphasizes the development of an effective argument for an interpretation of a literary work, both in the introductory chapters and in “Arguing for an Interpretation” questions at the end of each reading. The extraordinary breadth of the reading selections, and the diversity of the authors represented in the text, are unique; students will find some classic works, such as Shakespeare's “Hamlet,” along with many less well—known writings from authors around the globe, representing Eastern as well as Western cultures. Students will be challenged to understand the cultural context of the readings, and stimulated to provide meaningful analysis and interpretation of the texts.

"The disciplines of English and composition seem particularly prone to crisis-driven proclamations: our kids don't read the great works or they don't read at all or they can't write. Crisis talk notwithstanding, educators are left to theorize and practice ways to teach reading and writing with intelligence, compassion, and integrity. However, it often seems that theoretical formulations do not sufficiently explain their practicable applications; and practicable discussions too rarely rise above the level of swapping recipes--sharing assignments that work well in one context but may not in another. Therefore, the editors of this volume submit this collection of essays that strives to harmonize the all-too-often discordant qualities of theory and practice. Each co-authored essay illustrates and analyzes various classroom-based strategies for productive collaboration between literature and composition. This collection envisons a reciprocal to composing literature--literaturing composition, which entails "living through" literature, as Louise Rosenblatt has it. This process regards the literary text as a medium for creative action, so that one reads not to criticize so much as to imagine new compositional possibilities. The eight essays in this collection are divided into four sections which span topics that include: textuality and critical pedagogy, argumentation and hybrid genres, student engagement and popular culture, and materiality and assessment."--Publisher's website.
