A Short Guide to Writing about Literature provides students with a thorough reference of how to read, ask questions of, and write about literary texts which they will read in higher education courses. This critical approach to reading and thinking about literature enables them to interpret and analyze literature using current critical approaches, and it then provides them with suggestions on how to write about literature.

The book is divided into four parts and concludes with several appendixes. Please note that some of the chapters have changed since the previous edition; they have been updated to reflect the changing landscape of writing about literature; for example, Chapter 15 now contains an entirely new section on finding, using, and citing electronic resources. Here, then, is an overview of what to expect of the ninth edition of Short Guide to Writing about Literature:

Part I, "The Writer as Reader: Reading and Responding," emphasizes the connection between reading and writing. Chapter 1 focuses on reading a text and responding to it while Chapter 2 covers the process of writing from brainstorming to drafting, revising, and editing. Chapter 3 examines two commonly assigned types of writing—explication and analysis—with an emphasis on evaluating which type is used in a text. Concluding this part, Chapter 4 concentrates on various ways to write about literature, such as summary, paraphrase, parody, and review.

Part II, "Standing Back," looks at definitions of literature and how we, as scholars of literature, interpret these definitions. Chapter 5 explores how our culture defines and categorizes "literature." Chapter 6 considers interpretation and the sources of meaning in a particular work. Chapter 7 focuses on the critical standards we use to analyze literature, and Chapter 8 provides an overview of the critical approaches scholars employ when evaluating literature.

Part III, "Up Close: Thinking Critically about Literary Forms," introduces students to various genres of literature and suggests how to approach writing about them. Chapters 9 through 12 provide students with suggestions for responding to essays, fiction, drama, and poetry. This section includes several sample essays that illustrate effective examples of genre-specific writing.

Part IV, "Inside: Style, Format, and Special Assignments," examines structural elements of writing. Chapter 13 introduces the main principles of style, such as writing accurately, coherently, and emphatically. Chapter 14 demonstrates the crucial steps necessary in writing a research paper, and Chapter 15 presents new approaches to the research paper, including literature, history, and the Web.

The two appendixes include two short stories which served as the subjects of student essays, and a guide to print and electronic resources. Also, there are two indexes: one of authors, titles, and first lines of poems; and the other of literary terms.

This text will enrich students’ perspectives on literature and, ultimately, the way they approach writing about literature.

(Ideal as a supplement to any course where writing about literature or literary studies is emphasized.)
