Students respond powerfully to literature when it explores issues that matter to them, such as how love can be compromised by the demands of tradition, how authoritarian injustice can be resisted, and how popular culture influences behavior. And when students learn to analyze and argue for how literature engages such issues and exerts such power, they develop and hone their critical thinking and writing skills. In its fifth editionMaking Literature Mattercontinues to deliver on the promise of its title. Its thematic anthology gathers memorable stories, poems, plays, and essays into unique literary clusters addressing issues that rouse passionate responses in students. At the same time, its comprehensive rhetoric shows students how to harness those responses into thoughtful arguments about the issues raised by the clusters and the literature.

John Clifford is Professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, where he teaches literature, writing, and theory. During the summer he teaches literary response at the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania and reading theory at Northeastern's Martha's Vineyard Workshops. He has taught writing at Queens College, CUNY, and was a high school English teacher and chairman for ten years in Brooklyn, New York. He received his Ph.D. in 1977 from New York University
