This compact versionof Literature: An Introduction to Fiction, Poetry, Drama, and Writi ng has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook(April 2016)*

Cultivate a Love of Literature

A streamlined version of Kennedy/Gioias acclaimed literary anthology, Literature: An Introduction to Fiction, Poetry, Drama, and Writing, Compact, 8th Edition is a book to lead readers beyond the boundaries of self to see the world through the eyes of others. Built on the assumption that great literature can enrich and enlarge the lives it touches, this text was developed with two primary goals: to introduce individuals to the appreciation and experience of literature in its major forms and to develop individuals' abilities to think critically and communicate effectively about and through writing.

* The 8th Editionintroduces sweeping changes to thephilosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the increasing mobility of texts, MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.
