Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

For composition and introduction to literature courses, The Riverside Anthology of Literature has long been praised for its rich variety of selections, its interwoven commentary, its eloquent editorial prose, its unobtrusive apparatus, and its organizational flexibility. To acquaint students quickly with the specific qualities of a genre, each section now opens with six short selections that focus on a particular theme for easy comparison and contrast.
