KEY BENEFIT:nbsp; This thematically organized anthology treats literature as a continually expanding commentary on our infinitely varied lives, helpingnbsp;to make the connection between literature andnbsp;our own unique life stories.nbsp;KEY TOPICS:nbsp; Each of the anthologys themes-Family, Men and Women, Vulnerability, Freedom and Responsibility, Creativity, and Quest-progresses outward from reflections on the self to more universal issues.nbsp;bull;nbsp;nbsp;Within each theme, the readings provide a unique combination of traditional and contemporary works that highlight the diverse cultures and perspectives of our world today.nbsp;bull; This anthology takes a process-oriented approach to reading and interpreting literature demonstrating how natural it is to move from engagement with literature to response and then to interpretation and persuasive writing.nbsp;MARKET:nbsp; For those interested in an anthology that covers the writing process in Part I with a thematically organized anthology in Part II.

Sylvester C. W. Eijffinger is Professor of Financial Economics at the Center for Economic Research and the Department of Economics and Jean Monnet Professor of European Financial and Monetary Integration at Tilburg University.
