Literature: Reading and Writing with Critical Strategies energizes literary study by showing students how to use critical approaches to engage literary texts and evolve critical arguments. Lynn's truly innovative text shows students how to use critical strategies to engage with literary texts and develop critical arguments. Plentiful examples demonstrate the process of writing about literatureprogressing from a blank page to an insightful response and ultimately to a final essayusing a variety of theories as invention strategies. A richly diverse selection of literary works provides students with thematicallytied materials to read and write about fiction, poetry, and drama. Nancy Kennedy of Edmonds Community College concluded, ...a promising new text is on the way, one that could become a standard in its field.
