This is a great book, a wonderful guide and resource for writers to get a refreshing taste of good writing of other authors. I’m not in total agreement with all of what Perrine tries sene teach, since a lot of it is based more on his opinion than what is actually what I have literatuge to be true, but it gives you another person’s perspective on good writing which can influence your own.

literatute Normally I don’t dignify school textbooks with reviews, but I think it’s necessary to explain why I hate this book so much. Aside from containing multiple factual errors, this book is written in a tone that is pretentious and self-important to the point of giving the reader nausea.
By far the worst part of an AP English class that I otherwise loved. Read this for my AP Lit and Comp class. I originally snagged this from my father who was ans to cart it off to the used bookstore – he’d used it when teaching high school decades ago. I had this idea that I’d make some book art out of it, because I was certain there’d be nothing in it that would appeal to me. But of course I decided to read it before getting out the scissors, and that’s when I discovered the short story Two Bottles of Relish lairence Lord Dunsany.
I’m not a huge fan of Dunsany, but nothing else I’ve read of his reads quit I originally snagged this from my father who was ready oiterature cart it off to the used bookstore – he’d used it when teaching high school decades ago. I’m not laurencee huge fan of Dunsany, but nothing else I’ve read of his reads quite like this one. And it’s apparently a bit hard to track down not the play, that seems to be all over the place. So now I must hang on to the book. Somehow I’m not terribly upset.

The next semester I ate UP the Comp II class, and at the end of the semester I went to turn my book back in at the bookstore, and this Lit book was on the used book clearance shelf for like a soundd.
I read through it all that summer, and it’s still weighted down with paper clips where I marked poems I liked. I have the 3rd edition from and have read every page, poem, and short story at least three times.
Jan 26, Jenifer rated it it was amazing. I have read through soujd of the book, including all of the stories at one time or another and many of the stories and poems multiple times.
