Abstract:

[This book] emphasizes reading literature as an active enterprise involving thought and feeling. Students are invited to consider why they respond to works of literature as they do and how their responses change during subsequent readings; they are asked, in short, to relate their experience in reading literature to their experience in living. They are encouraged to see literature as a significant reflection of life and an imaginative extension of its possibilities. [This book] is designed to involve students in the twin acts of reading and analysis. Each of the genres is introduced by a three-part explanatory overview of the reading process [which includes]: 1. the experience of literature; 2. the interpretation of literature; [and] 3. the evaluation of literature.-Pref.
