Perrine's Sound And Sense (Fourteenth Edition)

by Greg Johnson and Thomas R. Arp

In preparing this fourteenth edition of Perrine's Sound and Sense, I have striven to be true to the principles established by Laurence Perrine more than fifty years ago while acknowledging the evolving nature of poetry. I have been guided not only by my own experience but also by the rich legacy of Thomas R. Arp, who joined Perrine in 1979, and by the helpful suggestions of many teachers who have contributed the results of their classroom experience.

Perrine's Literature

by Greg Johnson and Thomas R. Arp and Donna Carlson Tanzer

An authoritative bestseller for over fifty years, PERRINE'S LITERATURE: STRUCTURE, SOUND, AND SENSE continues to be an essential and highly effective introduction to literature for today's students. Written for students beginning a serious study of literature, the text introduces the fundamental elements of fiction, poetry, and drama in a concise and engaging way, addressing vital questions that other texts tend to ignore, such as "Is some literature better?" and "How can it be evaluated?" A remarkable selection of classic, modern, and contemporary readings serves to illustrate the elements of literature and ensure broad appeal to students of diverse backgrounds and interests. Updated with new stories, poems, and plays by some of the finest authors of any era, the twelfth edition remains true to Perrine's original vision while addressing the needs of a new generation of students.

Literature

by Nicholas Delbanco and Alan Cheuse

Bringing writers to readers brings readers to writing. Today's students do read--we know that they read a significant amount of email, text messages, web pages, and even magazines. What many do not do is read in a sustained way. Many do not come to college prepared to read long texts, nor do they come with the tools necessary to analyze and synthesize what they read. Nick Delbanco and Alan Cheuse have proven in their own teaching that when you improve students' ability and interest in reading, you will help them improve their writing. A new part 1 in this edition frontloads information for students on both the writing process and the critical use of sources. Bringing writers to students, brings students to writing. Literature: Craft and Voice is an innovative Introductory Literature program designed to engage students in the reading of Literature, all with a view to developing their reading, analytical, and written skills. Accompanied by, and integrated with, video interviews of dozens of living authors who are featured in the text, conducted by authors Nick Delbanco and Alan Cheuse specifically for use with their textbook, the book provides a living voice for the literature on the page and creates a link between the student and the authors of great works of literature. The first text of its kind,Literature: Craft and Voice offers a more enjoyable and effective reading experience through its fresh, inviting design and accompanying rich video program. Digital support is provided through CONNECT Literature which will be totally integrated with the Blackboard CMS.

Writing America

by David A. Jolliffe and Hephzibah Roskelly

We have designed Writing America: Language and Composition in Context AP* Edition so that it can be used as the foundational text in a course that emphasizes reading, writing, and analyzing texts. Writing America teaches reading as a dynamic, interactive process. It teaches writing as a craft, related to reading, that produces rich, purposeful, well-planned and well-executed texts. It teaches the structure and organization of texts, at the level of both the whole text and the sentence. It couches this instruction in an examination of vitally important works of American literature, art, and culture, accompanied by a study of contemporary pieces that unpack current thinking on the issues and themes raised by the historical works.
