More > knowledge of history in understanding the content of many classic works.

These divisions were made roughly to match the changes in the style, types, and tastes of literature, changes in the English language, and changes in control of state.

Speaking in Symbols (Reader) By William Walter

Prints in 3-5 business days

More > whatnot will be proof enough. But everything sold in today’s bookshops, although somewhat enter­taining, is not necessarily good. There is virtually only one proof of literary legitimacy—the test of time—and most of the works contained in this anthology have with­stood that test. ¶ This work seeks to do several things.

It also attempts to show the connection that the various genres have with one another. Finally, this anthology encourages student readers to penetrate the mere enter­tainment value of a good story in order to under­stand its deeper levels of meaning.< Less
Giving an Account (Reader) By William Walter
Paperback: $29.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
What missed opportunities are there for teachers who do not recognize the personal narrative’s natural advantages over fiction! If you understand fiction at all, you understand that it is its... More > realistic, not fantastical, elements that make it so appealing. Fictional plots, settings, and characters have to seem real to the reader in order for them to be interesting—plots have to make sense, descriptions of settings must seem familiar, and characters’ thoughts must, at least vaguely, mirror our own thoughts. But even with the best fiction writers, the imagination sometimes can produce false fabrications. Personal narratives, such as those found in this textbook, are for the most part not fabrications, but represent the real thoughts, feelings, and situations of real people. The text will include works by Plutarch, Lewis and Clark, Guy de Maupassant, O. Henry, George Müller, James Boswell, Booker T. Washington, Charles Dickens and many others.
