Arguing about Literature : A Guide and Reader (Paperback) (John Schilb & John Clifford)
about this item
More and more, first- year writing courses foreground skills of critical analysis and argumentation. In response, Arguing about Literature hones students’ analytical skills through instruction in close critical reading of texts, showing them how to turn their reading into well-supported and rhetorically effective argumentative writing. Two books in one, it combines a guide to reading literature and writing arguments with a compact thematic anthology of stories, poems, plays, essays, and arguments for analysis and research, from the authors of Making Literature Matter.
