This version of the best selling college handbook includes a tabbed section called Writing about Literature, a practical guide to interpreting works of literature and to planning, composing, and documenting papers about literature. Students will find help with forming and supporting an interpretation, avoiding plot summary, integrating quotations from a literary work, observing the conventions of literature papers, and using secondary sources. Writing about Literature also includes two sample student essays — one that uses primary sources and one that uses primary and secondary sources. The full primary texts are also included.

Writing about Literature is also available in a packageable, stand-alone booklet (ISBN: 978-0-312-65684-3). Contact your sales representative or sales_support@bfwpub.com for a copy.
