For Introductory Literature and Composition courses.
Literature and the Writing Process combines the best elements of a literature anthology with those of a handbook to guide students through the interrelated process of analytical reading and critical writing.
The authors of Literature and the Writing Process hold to one simple premise: great literature–always thought-provoking, always new–offers a valuable path to teaching both writing and critical thinking skills. By seamlessly integrating literature and composition into one multi-purpose text, this approach serves the dual process of enabling students both to enjoy, understand, and learn from imaginative literature; and to write clearly, intelligently, and correctly about what they have learned. Text writing assignments use literature as a tool of critical thought, a method for analysis, and a way of communicating ideas. This approach emphasizes writing as the focus of the book with literature as the means to write effectively.
