"Living Literature" focuses on literature as one part of a living, fluid conversation across cultures and time periods while encouraging readers to explore and interact with the literature. Each feature in this innovative anthology accentuates the study of literature as a continual dialogue, encouraging readers to explore, interact with, and respond to what they read. Organized by genre, "LIVING LITERATURE" lends context to a vibrant collection of stories, poems, and plays by highlighting several "moments" in which writers, painters, photographers, critics, filmmakers, and musicians all derive inspiration from one another. The book then shows students how to add their own voices to that ongoing conversation, and how to go from being passive readers to active participants and critical thinkers. As author John Brereton writes in the book's preface, the "cultural conversation in thinking, speaking, and writing about literature is a powerful means of participating in the world around us-of playing our parts as community and world citizens." Literature enthusiasts looking for a new perspective.

Literature is a conversation — between writers and other writers, and between writers and readers. In Literature and Its Writers, Ann and Samuel Charters complement a rich and varied selection of stories, poems, and plays with an unparalleled array of commentaries about that literature by the writers themselves. Such "writer talk" inspires students to respond as it models ways for them to enter the conversation. In the sixth edition, the Charters continue to entice students to join the conversation, with adventurous and intriguing new literary works, more detailed coverage of literary elements, and more help with reading and writing. This anthology is now available with video! Learn more about VideoCentral for Literature.
