- Chapter 4: Researched Writing has been revised and moved to the front of the book. The chapter now follows the initial chapters on the writing process and provides easy-to-follow instruction for planning, researching, and documenting a paper using secondary sources, including a detailed description of the MLA Style for citing and crediting these sources. The chapter also contains a new documented student essay and is generously supplemented by Ideas for Researched Writing throughout the book
- Seven sample student papers, some with drafts, instructor or peer comments and prewriting materials, that illustrate how to write about each genre and how to do researched writing. Students can see and understand how to go about devising and drafting their essays; they profit from seeing the writing process illustrated at every stage.
- Three kinds of writing prompts included in each chapter allow instructors to choose among them flexibly depending on his or her goals and philosophy.
- The single text for class saves them money and is convenient.
This combined introduction to literature and writing guide begins with writing basics, then moves on to specifics: writing about short fiction, structure, imagery and symbolism, point of view, setting and atmosphere, theme, persona and tone, poetic language, poetic form, dramatic structure, and character. Diverse selections make up the anthologies of literature, poetry, and drama that are included. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
