Part of Longman's successful Short Guide Series, A Short Guide to Writing about Literature emphasizes writing as a process and incorporates new critical approaches to writing about literature. The twelfth edition continues to offer students sound advice on how to become critical thinkers and enrich their reading response through accessible, step-by-step instruction. This highly respected text is ideal as a supplement to any course where writing about literature or literary studies is emphasized. Part I (Chs. 1-5) emphasizes the close connections between reading and writing, reflecting the need for good writers to be effective, analytic readers. Part II (Chs. 6-9) offers strategies and practical guidelines for understanding how literature "works" (form and meaning), and for understanding the differences between interpretation and evaluation. Part III (Chs. 10-15) explores the differences between writing about fiction, drama, and poetry, and includes an in-depth look at the writing of a single author (Langston Hughes). Part IV (Chs. 16-17) offers guidance for writing academic papers including research and formatting. Appendices include two stories that are the subjects of student essays in the book, a glossary of literary terms, and a quick review quiz. A wealth of student papers, including preliminary notes, drafts, and revisions of drafts appear throughout the book. Checklists on a variety of topics offer brief, effective guidelines. - Publisher
