Featuring the smallest trim size and page count of any comparable anthology, this appealing new three-genre collection encourages students to experience the pleasures of reading literature. A Little Literature: Reading, Writing, and Argument offers a compact and economical alternative to bulky anthologies.

Concise, yet complete, editorial apparatus provides guidance on reading, writing, and, most particularly, developing arguments about literature.
