Features:
  • The first part of Writing Essays about Literature provides thorough and clear descriptions of literary conventions characteristic of fiction, drama, and poetry, not just for their own sake but for their usefulness in interpreting literature; while the second part focuses specifically on the writing process.
  • Prompts, such as Questions, Thinking on Paper, Now It's Your Turn, encourage readers to think on their own, develop their own ideas, and to practice what they have learned.
  • End of chapter material includes Works Cited lists that serve as invitations for further reading and Checklists that serve as summaries of the chapters and allow students to apply what they've learned to any literature they read. Page references in the Checklists take readers to places where the concepts are treated.
  • Writing Essays about Literature includes many full-length works both throughout the text and in an Appendix that serve as illustrations of major points and as subjects for further discussion and writing.
  • The 'Style Sheet' thrust of the book - Chapters 10 and 11 - gives guidelines for the physical format of essays and rules of usage typical of essays about literature. It also includes a student essay to serve as a model for research essays.
