An Introduction to Literature, Part 3
Herbert Barrows, Gordon Norton Ray
Houghton Mifflin, 1959 - 1331 pages
This collection is designed to introduce college students to literature. Each volume focuses on a specific area, wherein the characteristics, conventions, and special effects of each kind of writing are set out, the critical terms are introduced, and each editor brings their viewpoint to the task. The editors of this book see literature as an unending source of delight, and propose analysis to the student not as an end in itself, but as a means of widening the range of comprehension, the deepening of enjoyment for literature as more fully comprehended. Each book features introductions that explore the type of literature addressed, brief author biographies, and a series of questions designed to allow students to exercise their critical and analytical faculties.
