Literature: Reading Fiction, Poetry, Drama, and the Essay by Robert DiYanni
9780070169432 This anthology is a broad introduction to the reading of fiction, poetry, drama and the essay, and should be appropriate for both introduction-to-literature courses and composition courses that incorporate literature. This volume covers the reading process for each genre and encourages students to see literature as an imaginative reflection of life. The poetry section is illustrated with full-colour art. This new edition presents a wider range of multicultural writers in all genres and more contemporary selections. The "poems and paintings" section has been expanded and now contains more poems in translation and poems from other languages. A new section on literary criticism features essays representing a variety of approaches to reading and enjoying literature. The drama section has been expanded to contain 17 full plays, including Shakespeare's "As You Like It", Tennessee Williams's "The Glass Menagerie", August Wilson's "Fences" and Wendy Wasserstein's "The Man in a Case". An instructor's manual (0-07-016946-2) is also available.
