Literature for Composition offers the finest writing and argument coverage, helpful discussions of the literary elements, compelling case studies, and a diverse array of selections. This book is based on the assumption that students in composition or literature courses should encounter first-rate writing not simply competent prose, but the powerful reports of experience that have been recorded by highly skilled writers past and present. The study of such writing offers pleasure and insight into life. It also leads to increased skill in communicating. Literature for Composition opens with five chapters devoted to reading, writing, and argument. An entire chapter on critical thinking equips students with a foundation upon which to study the chapters on the literary forms that follow. Two complete chapters cover argument, interpretation, and evaluation. An anthology organized around seven engaging themes allows instructors to structure their classes with great flexibility. Special chapters on visuals and film along with nine case studies offer additional resources.
