Most literature anthologies present literary texts as material to be mastered. Author biographies explain why the included texts are valuable, while questions for reading and writing direct readers to pick up on the features of these texts that literary scholars ?nd important. Writing Through Literature removes the packaging that often surrounds literary texts, allowing students to use literature as a lens for scholarly inquiry instead of the object of study. The design of Writing through Literature is simple: * An introduction for students that describes writing through literature and offers strategies and short assignments that can be used with any text* Challenging literary texts selected by instructors who have found them productive in the composition classroom* Online instructor resources with a variety of assignments that promote inquiry through literature and suggest supplementary texts to expand and complicate emerging arguments Texts included in Writing through Literature: Alexie, Sherman.
