Literature: An Introduction to Fiction, Poetry, Drama, and Writing (11th Edition) ebook

by X. J. Kennedy,Dana Gioia


Dana Gioia is a poet, critic, and teacher. This textbook gives deep coverage to the areas of short fiction, drama, and poetry. It contains an astounding amount of information.

Dana Gioia is a poet, critic, and teacher. Born in Los Angeles of Italian and Mexican ancestry, he attended Stanford and Harvard before taking a detour into business. "Not many poets have a Stanford . thank goodness!") After years of writing and reading late in the evenings after work, he quit a vice presidency to write and teach. There are quite a number of full stories, poems, and plays-although I have not counted, I would say that the number could be approaching 1000.

Literature: An Introduction to Fiction, Poetry, and Drama. This book has great writing and poetry, but also explains how to analyze and also gives tips for writing. 0205230393 (ISBN13: 9780205230396). I would recommend that anyone who is interested in learning how to analyze writing, either someone else's or your own, or in picking up tips on how to write better take a serious look at this book. D It's full of interesting short stories and I thought the bits that the authors put in before each story were helpful in identifying themes/key passages. A pretty good read as far as textbooks go.

MARGARET ATWOOD From popular fiction and drama, both classic and contemporary, we are acquainted with many stereotyped characters. But usually we recognize, in the main characters of a story, human personalities that become familiar to us. If the story seems true to life, we generally find that its characters act in a reasonably consistent manner and that the author has provided them with motivation: sufficient reason to behave as they do.

It's the best anthology I've seen in 50 years. It has detailed explanations of all the literary areas it covers, and sample student essays which greatly help freshmen transitioning from high school to college. The 13th edition is a slight but not a significant improvement. I have bought several copies to lend to students still waiting for theirs to arrive. Be sure to get the portable edition, which divides the heavy hard cover book into four paperback books which will save your arm by carrying far less weight to the classroom. These editors make it easy to learn and easy to teach Freshman English, which I have done for ten years. Rental is cheaper, but this is a book you will want to keep.

This textbook gives deep coverage to the areas of short fiction, drama, and poetry. It contains an astounding amount of information. There are quite a number of full stories, poems, and plays--although I have not counted, I would say that the number could be approaching 1000.

The authors have done a great job in selecting writings to illustrate concepts. All of the selected writings are good, in the objective sense--they contain deep meaning. Of course, personal taste is subjective, and my experience was that some of the writings were thoroughly enjoyable, and none were quite intolerable.

There are also questions after pieces of literature to help the reader achieve more insight than they might of their own devices, small sections that offer tips on writing, light biographies and case studies of various authors. Throughout the course I have made lists of various authors I found to be particularly interesting, for further reading on my own time.

This singular textbook was, for the purpose of my class, equivalent to a boxed set which contains each of the treated topics in a separate book. The page numbers corresponded exactly to those of the books in the boxed set. I saved a good bit of money in purchasing this, and I much prefer a single textbook to a clumsy boxed set.

I like this textbook enough that now that my class is done, I am still considering whether to keep it for independent learning or sell it to recoup some of the cost.

I was required to have the 5th edition of this book for one of my education classes. I didn't want to buy it though, so I checked THIS edition out of the library. After reading it I realized I actually did want to buy it, because it has a lot of book lists and recommendations that I thought would be useful for my future teaching library. However, a 6th edition of this book was recently released, so I didn't want to buy the 5th edition for $80 when I KNEW that soon it would be worth almost nothing, so I bought this edition instead because it was less than $4!
Also, I checked the page numbers up to the ones my professor cited for certain chapters, and the difference is very minimal. About 5-6 page difference. I also had no trouble finding the information my professor expected me to know, as everything that she was going off of in the 5th edition is also in this edition. I imagine the only real difference is that the newer editions have more up-to date book lists.
I would recommend this book to anyone in the teaching profession though because it has SO many book recommendations and very useful information in general.

Great bound volume of literary texts and excellent break downs of plot and so forth. I have it only 3 because there is absolutely no good way to find the stories; no glossary, or table of contents with pages. My professor has chosen stories for us. So I find myself perusing through the thousands of pages searching for the stories.

Amazon TextBook Rentals saves my bank account, and it's even better with free Prime shipping.
As far as textbooks go, this is becoming a favorite of mine. I wish I had actually bought it. It has hundreds of writings, and my class is only covering a couple dozen. It's a great introductory textbook to some of the most respected and well-known writers for each category!
For faculty, it's being used in my English 2020: Introduction to English Literature class. :)

Was WAY less expensive than the edition in the school store, and had SO much more to read as well, but lacked the information/assignments being in the same place as the edition my school was using. I had to snap pictures of the assignments from a fellow student, and all but one of the stories needed (but I'd found it online) were present.

I bought this book for my Intro To Lit class. It is definitely one of those text books you keep for future reference. Kennedy does such a wonderful job of collectimg some of the most interesting works out there from classics to modern. More only complaint is the paper. The paper is like Bible paper. It is very thin so note taking is a bit of a pain but I still highly recommend it.
Definitely agree with other reviews - the choice of paper is terrible. The pages are made of bible-style pages, almost thinner in my opinion. They will rip very easily so do be careful flipping pages. Much like bible pages, the pages in this book are see-through onto the back side and next page as well. I suggest inserting a white piece of computer paper behind the page you are reading if you find it irritating to have words bleeding through. The book is fine though you might want to save yourself some cash in buying this book - about 3/4th of the content of the book are public domain books that you can download via Amazon Kindle for free.
