An abundance of great literary works! April 7, 2011
This book is quite amazing, there is so much jam packed in this book that it could be used for many years and many levels of English / Literature for many different types of people with their own individual styles. The pages are like Bible paper... thin, and so much knowledge contained within. It is going to be an adventure getting through this whole book, even if we don't get through the whole thing in my class. It is a great resource from beginning to end, from beginner to expert. This was the first time I have ever ordered off the internet. I was kind of scared at first to pay for something like this over the internet. It is wonderful how technology allows us to do this now. This book was in the exact condition that ecampus stated it was. I was very pleased; this is a very handy piece of literature to have around when writing in college, great book on style, narrative literature, novels, short story, and poetry. Wonderful information to impart on teens!
