Summary

Through carefully selected stories, poems, and plays ranging from classic work to modern favorites, the Compact Bedford Introduction to Literature teaches you to read more closely and write more intentionally about literature.

Table of Contents

81 stories, poems, and plays representing canonical, multicultural, contemporary, and popular literature are new to this edition. Complementing the addition of several classic literary works are numerous stories, poems, and plays not frequently anthologized. These include stories by Gavin Ford Kovite, Geoff Wyss, and Lydia Davis; poems by Charles Simic, Kay Ryan, and Martín Espada; and plays by Rich Orloff and Wendy Wasserstein. The stories, poems, and plays new to this edition are a rich collection of traditional, contemporary, and multicultural literature — works that will make classroom discussion come alive.

A thematic case study on war in the fiction section includes vivid stories in a range of styles and points of view so that every student will find something they will remember. These three stories explore perennial concerns as well as contemporary responses to war, and confront its profound impact on both soldiers and civilians.
