Best introduction to literature book I've used  March 10, 2015

"This is a different book on literature than the usual league of books that we come across in the area of literature. This book elucidates that various genres of literature and covers in depth poetic, story and prose writing in general. The book is beset with several examples and these examples are made interesting and thought provoking by the dint of topics chosen. Literature , on the outset, would appear to be a dull and rather a technical undertaking to read through. This is overcome by this book as it makes literature not only interesting but also thought provoking. The excitement of making interesting written word is ignited by this book. A must for all those who wish to delve deep into literature."
