Literature: An Introduction to Fiction, Poetry, Drama, and Writing, Portable Edition

Product Description

Literature, Portable Edition, 11/e, features four lightweight, paperback volumes—Fiction, Poetry, Drama, and Writing—packed in a slipcase.  The material is presented in a newly revised, easier to study format and inlcudes MLA’s latest guidelines.  Conversations between Dana Gioia and celebrated fiction writer Amy Tan, current U. S. Poet Laureate Kay Ryan, and contemporary playwright David Ives, offer students an insider’s look into the importance of reading to three contemporary writers.  A Latin American Writers casebook is new to Fiction and collects some of the finest authors from the region including Octavia Paz, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Ines Arendondo.  A casebook on Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “Young Goodman Brown” is now featured as part of the Three Stories In-depth chapter.  Many new writers have been added including Naguib Mafouz, Virginia Woolf, Sherman Alexie, Mary Oliver, Bettie Sellers, and Anne Deavere Smith.  As always, editors X. J. Kennedy and Dana Gioia bring personal warmth and a human perspective to the Eleventh Edition of this comprehensive anthology.

    Haven’t read too much of it yet. It is the text required for me ‘Into to Lit.’ class. But after scanning through the tittles it seams to be a great collection of works, spanning many authors, genres, and times. Im not much of a story reader though, mostly read educational books in particular into computers/programming. But this is definatltly a great collection to have, in or out of school. Take care everyone!

    The item was received in a prompt manner and was in excellent condition. The Literature packet, however, did not contain the “Student Access Code” for My LiteratureLab as it was supposed to have within the package. This, however, was a problem on the publishers end and not the shippers. The publisher, as I found out later, did not apparently have it enclosed with many more packets as my son’s entire college class did not have the code and the booklets were purchased from different venues. There is no way the shipper would have known this. Again, the item arrived in excellent condition and promptly as promised.
