Reading and Writing from Literature is ideal for instructors who wish to support students with significant writing instruction accompanied by a robust literary anthology that includes fiction, poetry, drama, and essays. Using an approachable, conversational tone, this thematic anthology and writing text emphasizes intertextuality—the way in which texts, including the student's own writing, grow out of other texts. Thirteen chapters of guidance on writing about literature (Parts I–III) cover such topics as planning, drafting, and revising essays on literature, research and documentation in a literature-based context, writing argumentative literary essays, and creating a writing portfolio. Part IV introduces students to the genres—short stories, poems, plays, and essays. Part V provides a thorough overview of figurative language. Part VI, the text's thematic anthology, is organized around themes of particular interest to students: Gender and Relationships, Families, Experience and Identity, Individual and Society, People and Cultures in Conflict and Change, and Work and the Quality of Life. New! Responding to the increased emphasis on visual literacy in many literature and literature and composition courses, a new four-color insert presents art and photography for analysis. Prompt questions encourage students to respond to the images with creative and analytical writings. New! "Writing Arguments" (Chapter 9) provides a thorough and nuanced definition of argument followed by a careful analysis of an argumentative essay (Barbara Kingsolver's "The One-Eyed Monster, and Why I Don't Let Him In") that takes into account issues such as persona, audience, and supporting evidence, then guides students through the argument writing process. The chapter concludes with a sample student argumentative essay analyzing William Blake's "The Clod and the Pebble." New! "Introduction to Figurative Language" (Part V, Chapter 19) explains and illustrates all of the major types of figurative language. Students learn how to identify and interpret metaphors, similes, paradoxes, irony, and other figures across literary genres and other contexts. This section features the most extensive and detailed treatment of figurative language of any composition text on the market. New! "Writing Literature-Based Research Papers" (Chapter 10) presents a thorough overview of the research process, including material on keeping a research log, narrowing focus, identifying and keeping track of source information, and citing outside sources. New! Concluding chapter, "Literature, So What?," addresses a question neglected in other literature and composition textbooks: Beyond preparing students for writing in the university and on the job, does literature have any value? Is the acquisition of "marketable skills" the ultimate and only aim of writing and reading literature? This essay argues that the writing and reading of literature also intensify the experience of living by fostering habits of contemplation and empathy in a hectic and often indifferent world. Revised! Part VI, "A Thematic Anthology of Readings" contains 45 new poems, essays/nonfiction writing, and short stories, with an emphasis on the contemporary. This edition features a stronger representation of international and multicultural authors, including such writers as Antoine de Saint-Exupery, Derek Walcott, Yusef Komunyaka, Sei Shonagon, and Allan Gurganus.

This brief rhetoric helps students develop strategies for critical reading, critical thinking, research, and writing that will help them argue clearly and convincingly. It teaches them to identify and develop arguments, to read and form reactions and opinions of their own, to analyze an audience, to seek common ground, and to use a wide, realistic range of techniques to write argument papers that express their individual views and original perspectives on modern issues. It includes clear explanations and examples of argument theory and reading and writing processes, research and documentation skills, and offers engaging, class-tested writing assignments and activities. 49 Essays for Analysis cover several broad issue and sub-issue areas, all of contemporary concern.

As critical thinking and coherent argument become even more important in our contemporary world, Arguing about Literature economically combines two first-year writing books in one: a concise guide to reading literature and writing arguments, and a compact thematic anthology of stories, poems, plays, essays, and arguments for inquiry, analysis, and research. The authors of the groundbreaking Making Literature Matter draw connections between contemporary debates and literary analysis, bringing both argument and literature into a contemporary context. Through instruction in close critical reading of texts and well-supported, rhetorically sound argumentative writing, Arguing about Literature prepares students to read, write, and argue effectively. The third edition includes a new chapter on evaluating internet resources and visual arguments in the "post-truth" era, as well as dozens of new works of literature and argumentation.

Written by leaders in the field of literacy and language arts Education, this volume defines Dialogic Literary Argumentation, outlines its key principles, and provides in-depth analysis of classroom social practices and teacher-student interactions to illustrate the possibilities of a social perspective for a new vision of teaching, reading and understanding literature. Dialogic Literary Argumentation builds on the idea of arguing to learn to engage teachers and students in using literature to explore what it means to be human situated in the world at a particular time and place. Dialogic Literary Argumentation fosters deep and complex understandings of literature by engaging students in dialogical social practices that foster dialectical spaces, intertextuality, and an unpacking of taken-for-granted assumptions about rationality and personhood. Dialogic Literary Argumentation offers new ways to engage in argumentation aligned with new ways to read literature in the high school classroom. Offering theory and analysis to shape the future use of literature in secondary classrooms, this text will be great interest to researchers, graduate and postgraduate students, academics and libraries in the fields of English and Language Arts Education, Teacher Education, Literacy Studies, Writing and Composition.
