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 intertextualitythe 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 genresshort 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. It 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. A four-color insert presents art and photography for analysis. Prompt questions encourage students to respond to the images with creative and analytical writings. "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." "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.

John Schwiebert (Ph. D., University of Minnesota) is Associate Professor of English at Weber State University, where he teaches a variety of courses in writing and literature. He is the author of The Frailest Leaves: Whitman's Poetic Technique and Style in the Short Poem and co-editor with Chris Anson of Writing Across the Curriculum: An Annotated Bibliography. He has given numerous workshops and presentations on journal writing, creativity, and intertexuality.
