Great literature as a path to learning writing and critical-thinking skills
Great literature is always thought provoking, always new – why not use it to improve your writing skills and sharpen critical thinking?
Literature and the Writing Process combines an introductory anthology with detailed instruction in the writing process. By seamlessly integrating literature and composition into one multi-purpose text, the authors enable you to enjoy, understand, and learn from imaginative literature – and to write clearly and intelligently about what you’ve learned.
Text writing assignments use literature as a tool of critical thought, a method for analysis, and a way of communicating ideas. Careful integration of rhetorical instruction with the critical study of literature guides you through the allied processes of analytical reading and argumentative writing. As a result, readers learn how to write essays about the major features that are involved in interpreting short stories, poems, and plays.
