250 Poems offers a wide and well-balanced selection of chronologically arranged poems, supported by succinct, practical editorial features.
The central aim of this book is to foster habits and skills of critical thinking. The third edition makes the book even more inclusive and accessible than the first and second editions. A unique feature of this book is its appendix on reading critical essays, which provides practical instruction on how to approach and read the academic essay, a genre that in itself is unfamiliar to many students, and which students may be asked to use as sources in their own writing.
The third edition of Literature: A Portable Anthology presents, in a compact and highly affordable format, an ample and flexible choice of fiction, poetry, and drama for introductory literature courses. Arranged chronologically by genre, the stories, poems, and plays are complemented by editorial matter that offers enough help for students learning to think, read, and write about literature, without interfering with their enjoyment of the literary works.
