Writing about Literature is a practical guide to interpreting works of literature and to planning, composing, and documenting papers about literature. Students will find help with forming and supporting an interpretation, avoiding plot summary, integrating quotations from a literary work, observing the conventions of literature papers, and using secondary sources.

Writing about Literature also includes two sample student essays — one that uses only a primary source and one that uses primary and secondary sources.

  • Superior content that's authoritative and trustworthy. With the tenth edition of A Writer's Reference, students have content written by widely respected authors and class-tested by hundreds of thousands of students and instructors. Users who loved the writing guides and how-to pages in the ninth edition will be pleased to know they are still here in the tenth - as are the engaging writing videos that help with argument, analysis, and annotated bibliography. 
  • Covers all the topics for composition. A Writer's Reference supports students as they compose for different purposes and audiences and in a variety of genres and as they collaborate, revise deeply, conduct research, document sources, format their writing, and edit for clarity.
  • Edition after edition, users praise the clean and open design that lets students breathe. Students themselves say the book is "not intimidating" and "not overwhelming." The emphasis on clear, direct advice, examples that teach, and useful navigation means students find solutions to writing problems quickly--and easily understand and apply what they find.

1 Reading to form an interpretation.- 2 Planning the paper.- 3 Writing the paper.- 4 Observing conventions.- 5 Integrating quotations from the text.- 6 Using secondary sources.- 7 Sample papers.
