Why did Homer's Odyssey show up thousands of years later as a made-for-television movie? Why has the story of Romeo and Juliet been told and retold throughout generations? Why is this week's mountain-climbing expedition next week's bestselling novel? People everywhere love a good story, whether it is as ancient as the tale of Odysseus or as current as today's news. Perhaps this is because a powerful story, no matter when it was written, explores conflicts, relationships, and emotions that all of us have experienced in our own lives. This is why some stories seem to live forever. And this is why we keep reading them.

Literature and Language is different from other books you have used in two important ways. First, it is organized to help you tie together your study of the language arts--literature, writing, and language. The literature, chosen for its appeal to your life, serves as the starting point for all your learning. Students like you helped to select the stories, plays, articles, and poems that appear in this book (see their names on page vi). You'll find stories that have been favorites for many generations, as well as works by current writers. Second, as you use this book, you will find that it does not present a "right" way to understand a story or to write a paper. Instead, it requires you to think for yourself. It asks you to form your own opinions and make your own decisions.
