[This book] offers [an] entry to literature for all students, whatever their previous exposure to fiction, poetry, and drama. It contributes to a richer, more dynamic and valuable reading experience for students while in class, and demonstrates why and how reading is an important part of their lives in school and beyond. [The text] leads students to consider the human value of reading any effective literary work. By focusing on the reading process, it expands the notion of what a work is "about": It is about a lot of things, not a single topic or theme that readers must figure out through what to many beginning students seems a mysterious and esoteric method.... The emphasis on "active reading" throughout the text leads directly into student writing. -Pref.

This book gives students an answer to the question, “What does my professor want from this essay?” In lively, direct language, it explains the process of creating “a clearly-written argument, based on evidence, about the meaning, power, or structure of a literary work.” Using a single poem by William Carlos Williams as the basis for the process of writing a paper about a piece of literature, it walks students through the processes of reading, brainstorming, researching secondary sources, gathering evidence, and composing and editing the paper. Writing Essays About Literature is designed to strengthen argumentation skills and deepen understanding of the relationships between the reader, the author, the text, and critical interpretations. Its lessons about clarity, precision, and the importance of providing evidence will have wide relevance for student writers.
