Summary

Based on the premise that literature liberates thinking, and argument disciplines it. This anthology features a critical thinking, analytical approach that readers in turn will apply to their own thought and writing processes. It introduces and explains the tools of argument, and presents reading selections centered on four enduring themes Individuality and Community, Nature and Place, Family and Identity, and Power and Responsibility. For those interested in literature, composition, and argumentative writing.
