Discovering Fiction maintains the exceptional organization and pedagogy of Guth and Rico's Discovering Literature, but includes an even wider range and number of selections for students to enjoy. The 75 stories form an accessible blend of classic favorites, contemporary pieces, and works from outside the mainstream. Dedicated to the goal of creating motivated and perceptive readers who can write well about literature, the text not only elicits students' intellectual engagement but fosters their emotional involvement and imaginative participation as well. Through its informed discussions and extensive apparatus, Discovering Fiction does far more than competing texts to actively involve students in the vitality and diversity of their literary culture.From the Back Cover:
