Summary

One of the first anthologies designed specifically for writing courses,Literature for Compositioncontinues to offer superior coverage of reading, writing, and arguing about literature and a deep anthology of readings presented in Sylvan Barnetrs"s signature accessible style. Literature for Compositionopens with several chapters that provide uniquely helpful strategies and models for reading, thinking, and writing critically about literature.

The text's 200 images, a 4-color insert, and special chapters on visual literacy and literature on film add another appealing dimension to the study of literature. Students of literature
