A refreshing alternative to voluminous literature anthologies, this compact, affordable, and diverse collection of fiction, poetry, and drama provides a concise, yet complete, introduction to the study of literature. Twenty-seven new selections-17 poems, 6 short stories, and 4 plays-include works from Daniel Orozco and Jorge Luis Borges, Billy Collins and Linda Pastan, August Wilson and Tennessee Williams. "Appendix A: Writing About Literature" now includes sample student essays for all three genres and offers organizational strategies, research methods, and MLA citation style. A revised general introduction, "Experience, Experiment, Expand: Three Reasons to Study Literature," now gives greater emphasis to the connection between literature and the reader's experience. Book jacket.
