“A refreshing alternative to the traditional argument textbook.”

“An excellent book. Students needed more support for learning how to read literature and write about it, and Arguing about Literature helped us get on the same page and improved the quality of the work they produced.”
--Andrew Logemann, Gordon College
“Arguing About Literature provides students with the primary and secondary materials that are critically important to understanding academic argument. No other textbook supplies the wealth of materials you will find here.”
--John B. Rollins, Lone Star College—Tomball

Arguing about Literature is an excellent textbook for an introduction to literature course. The stories, poems, and plays are representative of literature that students need in order to form a basis for their college education and for the joy of reading great works.
