Great literature as a way of learning writing and critical-thinking skills
Great literature is always captivating, always new – why not use it to improve your writing skills and improve critical thinking?
Literature and the Writing Process, 11th edition, (PDF) integrates an introductory anthology with detailed instruction in the writing process. By seamlessly combining literature and composition into one multi-purpose text, the authors allow you to enjoy, understand, and learn from imaginative literature – and to write intelligently and clearly about what you’ve learned.
Text writing assignments use literature as a tool of critical thought, a method for analysis, and a mode of communicating ideas. Careful integration of rhetorical instruction with the critical study of literature guides you through the allied processes of analytical reading and argumentative writing. Thus, readers learn how to write essays about the major features that are included in interpreting short stories, plays, and poems.
