Literature and the Writing Process combines the best elements of a literature anthology with those of a handbook to guide students through the interrelated process of analytical reading and critical writing.

Text writing assignments use literature as a tool of critical thought, a method for analysis, and a way of communicating ideas. This approach emphasizes writing as the focus of the book with literature as the means to write effectively. A three part organization combines a literary anthology with composition instruction and a style handbook so students have everything they need at their fingertips.

Some of the new features include:

-New Humor and Satire Portfolios now appear in every genre chapter, offering engaging new readings to encourage student interest.

-Expanded argument writing coverage (Ch. 3) offers more support for improving writing skills.

-New readings reflect a wide diversity of classic and contemporary voices, including Margaret Atwood, Chinua Achebe, David Sedaris, Billy Collins, and Robert Frost.

-Updated MLA coverage reflects the most current guidelines from the Modern Language Association.

-A refreshed drama section includes two remarkable plays: Picnic on the Battlefield, by Fernando Arrabal, and Beauty, by Jane Martin and A Raisin in the Sun, by Lorraine Hansberry has been brought back to this edition by popular demand.

A literature anthology, rhetoric, and handbook in one.

Every chapter of this anthology includes coverage of the writing process to help students write more successfully about literature. The process-oriented instruction shows students how to use writing as a way of studying literature and provides students with the tools to analyze literature on their own.

New to this edition:

-New photographs and images chosen to enhance understanding and appreciation of literature

-Expanded, updated discussion of researched writing (Chapter 17)

-Further instruction on the elements of argument and arguing an interpretation (Chapter 2)

-A new casebook on the poetry and prose of Langston Hughes
