Being and Becoming: An Introduction to Literature
An eclectic mix of the fresh and classic, this thematic introductory literature text contains 47 stories, 143 poems, and 9 plays-ranging from Sophocles to Eliot, from Hawthorne's "Young Goodman Brown" to Hellman's "Julia, " from Shakespeare's King Lear to Shange's for colored girls... Clear, brief introductions to each theme help students focus on ideas they can explore in writing. Discussions of the elements of each genre and of writing about literature supplement the thematic approach.
