From the Publisher :

More motivating and accessible than other anthologies, Discovering Literature helps instructors turn reluctant or nonreaders into enthusiastic, perceptive readers by helping them discover the richness and diversity of their literary heritage and the power of literature to illuminate and enhance their lives. The selections -- 55 stories, 355 poems, and 21 plays -- include a blend of classic favorites, contemporary pieces, and works representing authors from the mainstream as well as those from culturally diverse backgrounds. The text addresses the needs of today's students -- through provocative discussions, an expanded canon, a variety of critical perspectives, juxtaposition of similar works by authors from different periods or traditions, and an exceptional "way in" to the classics. A variety of interactive pedagogic features engages students intellectually, emotionally, and imaginatively and elicits students' personal responses to the selections and validates their own writing.

From the Back Cover :

Designed to turn reluctant readers into enthusiastic readers, DISCOVERING LITERATURE, Third Edition, features carefully chosen literature selections that work well in today's classrooms. This text is unsurpassed in integrating multicultural authors and honoring the rich diversity of the American experience. Readers will discover the contemporary relevance and continuing influence of the classics as they strengthen their skills with positive writing instruction and student models for writing about literature.

NEW TO THIS EDITION:
  • Four colorful Image and Word sections juxtaposing poetry with paintings
  • Festival of Classics stories and Festival of Nature poetry
  • Updated and expanded student Web site at www.prenhall.com/guth–the addition of a Writing about Literature section, interactive timeline, author photos, easy navigational bar, and information on literary theory
