The balanced coverage of classical and contemporary selections helps readers from all backgrounds realize the underlying commonality among cultures as well as recognize themselves within the literature. This anthology contains over 375 readings; four casebooks; and abundant visual material including facsimiles of manuscripts, author portraits, visual portfolios, and spot images.

A market leader for more than 30 years, Barnet's Introduction to Literature continues to uphold the traditions that have made it a success a rich blend of both classic and contemporary selections as well as Barnet's signature "how-to" instruction on the elements of literature and the writing process. The new edition features a wealth of contemporary stories and a new chapter on graphic novels that were chosen for their student appeal. New selections include 18 stories, 24 poems, a one-act play, Samuel Beckett's "Krapp's Last Tape," and a casebook on Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman.

The Poetry and Translation chapter gives a student essay in which the student discusses his translation of Federico Garcia Lorcas poem Despedida. Hints for translating as well as advice on translating haikus are given. Suggested writing assignments are also included. The balanced coverage of classical and contemporary selections helps students from all backgrounds realize the underlying commonality among cultures as well as recognize themselves within the literature.
