SUMMARY:

This innovative thematic anthology helps students make connections among works of literature from different eras and cultures; works of literature and life experiences; works of literature and works of art, as well as other visual images; and different genres and themes. With more than 150 literary selections, Connections presents a diverse mix of classic, modern, and contemporary voices spanning cultures and genres. Arranged around six timely and timeless themes, the selections are relevant and thought provoking to students. Collectively these thematic clusters form a coherent, yet flexible, "Literary Exploration of Human Nature," including: (1) obedience and rebellion; (2) love and lust; (3) honesty and deception; (4) vengeance and forgiveness; (5) industry and indulgence; and (6) greed, gluttony, and generosity. Each of the six thematic sections concludes by focusing on "Common Characters" that students will recognize: Icarus, Don Juan, the Trickster, the Prodigal Son, the Rags-to-Riches Figure, and the Gambler.

Modes Of Composition And The Durability Of Style In Literature

Download

SUMMARY:

Modes of Composition and the Durability of Style employs the tools and methods of computational stylistics to show that style is extremely resistant to changes in how texts are produced. Addressing an array of canonical writers, including William Faulkner, Joseph Conrad, Thomas Hardy, and Henry James, along with popular contemporary writers like Stephen King and Ian McEwan, this volume presents a systematic study of changes in mode of composition and writing technologies. Computational analysis of texts produced in multiple circumstances of composition, such as dictation, handwriting, typewriting, word processing, and translation, reveals the extraordinary durability of authorial style. Modes of Composition and the Durability of Style in Literature will be essential for readers interested in exploring the rapidly expanding field of digital approaches to literature.

Literature For Composition Mla Update

Literature For Composition Mla Update

Download

SUMMARY:

For courses in Literature for Composition, Writing About Literature, and Introduction to Literature. This version of Literature for Composition has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)* The definitive source for composition and introduction to literature courses With an emphasis on critical thinking and argument, Literature for Composition offers superior coverage of reading, writing, and arguing about literature along with an anthology organized around eight thought-provoking themes. Throughout, the authors demonstrate that the skills emphasized in their discussions of communication are relevant not only to literature courses, but to all courses in which students analyze texts or write arguments. * The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the "increasing mobility of texts," MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.

SUMMARY:

In the age of Buzzfeeds, hashtags, and Tweets, students are increasingly favoring conversational writing and regarding academic writing as less pertinent in their personal lives, education, and future careers. Writing and Literature: Composition as Inquiry, Learning, Thinking and Communication connects students with works and exercises and promotes student learning that is kairotic and constructive. Dr. Tanya Long Bennett, professor of English at the University of North Georgia, poses questions that encourage active rather than passive learning. Furthering ideas presented in Contribute a Verse: A Guide to First-Year Composition as a complimentary companion, Writing and Literature builds a new conversation covering various genres of literature and writing. Students learn the various writing styles appropriate for analyzing, addressing, and critiquing these genres including poetry, novels, dramas, and research writing. The text and its pairing of helpful visual aids throughout emphasizes the importance of critical reading and analysis in producing a successful composition. Writing and Literature is a refreshing textbook that links learning, literature, and life.
