Publisher's Synopsis

A comprehensive rhetoric for a one/two-semester, freshmen-level course in composition.

  • Written in a clear, engaging style, this best-selling text combines four books-a rhetoric, a research guide, a reader, and a handbook-into one convenient teaching tool. The Rhetoric section presents a full range of writing strategies, along with chapters on paragraphs, sentences, style, and three specialized types of writing. This section also includes an in-depth chapter on planning and drafting, as well as one on revising and editing a paper. The Research Guide section includes three comprehensive chapters that make supplemental handouts or guides unnecessary. The Reader section contains forty-five essays that illustrate the different writing strategies and display a wide variety of styles, tones, and themes. The Handbook section offers easy access to the major elements of grammar, punctuation, and mechanics, and includes a unit on spelling and a glossary of word usage.
  • Available in an alternate version-without the Handbook section.
