Literature and Its Writers: An Introduction to Fiction, Poetry, and Drama

Literature and Its Writers: An Introduction to Fiction, Poetry, and Drama - I actually didn't get this for a class. My wife picked it up at a library booksale. I like this anthology because it presents a pleasurable variety of material. It also hits some anthology favorites but there's a good number of authors I wasn't familiar with beforehand but was provoked into reading more of. It also has a nice feature that it doesn't just present isolated texts but links the texts with eachother in interesting ways. I'm reading it pretty much straight through, though I'm skipping most of the stories I've read before, or stories that I intend to read in another context.
