Required for an Intro to Lit class, but loved the book
on August 4, 2013
I groaned when I saw this book (which was in addition to a very thick Vol 1), but it is filled with great stuff. If you are taking a 100-level college class in lit, the book provides a great over view. Take advantage of the info provided in the book's summaries of literary movements and their historical context, along with the author introductions/summaries (their writing styles and philosophies) when you're required to write an essay about a particular work, and you'll have what you need for a very basic lit course.
