Format: Hardcover
I discovered this text as part of an AP workshop, and I could not be more pleased with its content.

1) It contains a multitude of canon pieces to use in class
2) It features insightful, advanced analysis of key terms
3) It also contains a handful of dramas not normally easily found in more standardized texts.

I have found the terms explication to be a fantastic review for myself as a first-year AP Lit teacher and force my kids to read EVERY WORD.

Yes, this book may hold boring stories and poems, but the book also has some fantastic ones. Read them twice and analyze them, as I have done in my classes, and you will see significance, of some sort, in each story. My personal copy had a page ripped from it but, thankfully, the ripped page was included. This purchase saved me about one hundred dollars and arrived just in time for my assignment. I am SOOOOOO happy.

This book is okay. I had to buy it for class and it meets the criteria I would expect from a literature textbook. My copy was missing about 100 pages and I didn't know it until the end of the semester. Because it was missing pages, I was unable to resell it.
