This thematically organized anthology treats literature as a continually expanding commentary on our infinitely varied lives, helpingto make the connection between literature andour own unique life stories. Each of the anthology's themes—Family, Men and Women, Vulnerability, Freedom and Responsibility, Creativity, and Quest—progresses outward from reflections on the self to more universal issues.Within each theme, the readings provide a unique combination of traditional and contemporary works that highlight the diverse cultures and perspectives of our world today. A new emphasis on argument throughout the book is evidenced by an all new introductory section on literary argument, including an annotated student essay, and argument-oriented questions and suggestions for writing after the reading. New selectionsboth classic and contemporaryinclude 12 essays,9 poems, 7 short stories, and3 plays. New pieces range from Black Elk to Anton Chekhov and Todd James Pierce and from Walt Whitman to bell hooks and Julia Alvarez. New Casebooks on Robert Frost and Alice Walker enrich the units on Menand Women and Creativity. Revised Appendix B, Writing about Film, along with an expanded focus on film discusses film adaptations of literature, helping students view films with knowledge of the unique techniques available for this art form and write essays that make connections between films and literature.
