Appropriate for courses in Freshman Composition and Advanced Composition. This brief edition includes all of the essays included in the full edition. However, the fiction, poetry, and drama have been removed. Focusing on the process of writing, this concise, stresses such non-linear composition skills as context, purpose, and audience as it strongly emphasizes revision and multiple drafting. Both modern usage conventions and sentence/paragraph-level skills are developed as the basics of essay, research, literary, exam, and business writing are explored. Designed and organized for maximum ease of use as a reference source.
