X.J. Kennedy & Dana Gioia developed Literature: An Introduction to Fiction, Poetry, Drama, and Writing, 13/e with two major goals in mind: to introduce college students to the appreciation and experience of literature in its major forms and to develop the students’ abilties to think critically and communicate effectively through writing.  The book is built on the assumption that great literature can enrich and enlarge the lives it touches. Both editors, literary writers themselves, believe that textbooks should be not only informative and accurate but also lively, accessible, and engaging.

A very good and thorough textbook. This textbook gives deep coverage to the areas of short fiction, drama, and poetry. It contains an astounding amount of information.

Great for professional teaching library! 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…
