What Students Are Saying
“This is awesome. I love it.”
Sherri Hash, Student at Somerset Community College
“The illustrations and colors are extremely rich! It's also very convenient that information about the region is offered because not everyone is aware of global cultures, themes, and issues.”
Tania Kelley, Student at University of the Incarnate Word
“Color coordination is very important and a smart idea to help the student find certain selections in the book. Very well thought of! This is excellent.”
David Fortin, Student at Lehigh Carbon Community College
What Professors Are Saying
“I especially liked the way the text starts off by making it clear that critical analysis is argument. The breadth and depth of the topics covered and the emphasis on the higher cognitive nature of engaged reading and writing make this text very appealing to me.”
Dr. J. Lynn Barrett - Florida State College at Jacksonville
“I especially like the focus on world literature and universal themes. The introduction to the “Literature of Asia” provides important context and a provocative spring-board for exploring the literature. The visual embellishment is this chapter is wonderful.”
Jeniffer Strong – Central New Mexico Community College
“Kudos to Pike and Acosta for creating such an interesting, illuminating, and user-friendly text.”
Rebecca M. Whitten – Mississippi State University

students to a dynamic, ever-evolving world of stories, poems, plays, and essays.
Four unique casebooks focus on world literature and include a brief, colorful tour
of the culture and history of four regions. Casebooks discuss the Literature of Europe,
Literature of Africa, Literature of Asia, and Literature of the Americas.
All this for less than the cost of a sweatshirt in the campus bookstore.
