Bedford Introduction to Literature: Reading, Thinking, Writing remains a bestseller for would-be writers and entry-level writing students. Michael Meyer's engaging style has turned thousands of students into better writers and lifelong readers. Bedford Introduction to Literature: Reading, Thinking, Writing (ISBN 9780312539214) offers writing support and an in-depth look at how to develop critical analysis. It also offers excellent and extensive examples that not only teach students how to write, but also provide inspiration. The book covers dozens of topics, starting off with an introduction to reading imaginative literature, then going on to fiction and tackling important factors such as themes, characters, plots, perspective, and settings. Meyer also explains the writing process, poetry, and drama. Each chapter is peppered with examples and exercises to enhance writing skill and test progress. Some of the readings students will come upon in this book include William Faulkner's A Rose for Emily, Herman Melville's Bartleby, the Scrivener, Fay Weldon's, IND AFF, or Out of Love in Sarajevo, Stephen Crane's The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky, and Edgar Allan Poe's The Cask of Amontillado. One of the best things about this reference is its diversity; it does not focus on western writers only, but also features literary masterpieces from other cultures as well as underrepresented groups, such as women. Some stories and readings are critiqued in depth; case studies are also offered in some chapters. Michael Meyer's edition is not just a compilation of excellent readings, but also an motivational tool that encourages learners to write creatively.
