about this item

For courses in Literature for Composition, Writing Argument, Writing about Literature, and Introduction to Literature.
Enriches students’ reading and writing by connecting with ideas in the written text
The combined forces of literature and argument are inspiring and empowering–literature liberates thinking, and argument disciplines it.Reading Literature and Writing Argument takes the approach that writing is valued when it makes readers think. It offers multi-genre reading experiences that immerse students in critical and creative thinking as they address problems and issues from multiple perspectives. 
The authors encourage students to see language as a way to create meaning in their lives, and to see themselves as writers with a purpose and audience. By engaging with literature and applying the principles of argument, students practice the skills of analysis and evaluation and develop critical standards for judging ideas.
