    1. Yes! Finally!I've been studying this book for the last two semesters. Reading this book, I learned a lot about the basics and introductions to English literature. I read many good short stories, poems and plays that were included in the book. Well I haven't read them all, but I will. Someday! I just need some free time to go through these three books to review what I've read and read what I've skipped.

    2. As a general rule, I don't post any books here that I haven't read completely (hence no design books since, honestly, I only hunt and peck through those). This is one exception to the rule. I haven't read every page of this. And I haven't read all the stories, but I've read every one of the considerable number of poems.This was one of my dad's books. A text book, apparently. Printed the year I was born. When I went to college I took it with me and it sits right now with its tattered spine on my [...]

    3. 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 to teach, since a lot of it is based more on his opinion than what is actually what I have found to be true, but it gives you another person's perspective on good writing which can influence your own. The various short stories, plays, and poetry that Perrine uses in the book are wonderfully written, and as I mention [...]

    4. This book filled some egregious gaps of my knowledge in literature. But on a general level I found most of the short stories presented in this book pretty boring.

    5. As for how much I liked the creative work within, it's a mixed bag. Some things I really enjoyed and felt led me to grow in my understanding of literature, while others fell flat. I was wavering on giving this 3 stars, but considering the excellent lessons and thought-provoking questions, I thought it only fair to add a star. Obviously, one reading isn't enough to fully grasp this tome, but I can't help but believe that with diligent application of the teachings spread throughout, my future read [...]

    6. I, of course, did not read this in its entirety but am using this to teach AP Lit next year. Awesome book for any English teachers out there in need of any literary analysis guides. The poetry sections are incredibly thorough and offer great examples. I myself am HORRIBLE at poetry (I'm a reader/writer kinda gal) and already found incredibly helpful sections for crafting next year's lessons. Even as a student, if you can find a used copy, I have a feeling you will use the content of this book to [...]

    7. 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.

    8. I originally snagged this from my father who was ready 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 by Lord Dunsany. I'm not a huge fan of Dunsany, but nothing else I've read of his reads quit [...]

    9. The first class I took after I got sober was Intro to Computer Science at Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, but later that semester they offered a 1/2 semester Comp I night course. I saved up my tips all week to pay for it and got another bartender to switch nights with me, and I was absolutely amazed that I could actually write a little bit. 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 [...]

    10. I have the 3rd edition from 1978 and have read every page, poem, and short story at least three times. My favorite short story, Barthelme's "Some of Us Had Been Threatening Our Friend Colby" is here and I often reread it and try to force guests to read it.

    11. From an old journal entry of mine; "My Favorites;The Most Dangerous GameThe DestructorsI'm A FoolHills Like White ElephantsThe LotteryThe Catbird SeatThe Rocking Horse WinnerA Jury of Her PeersThe SwimmerThe Death of Ivan IlychThe Japanese QuinceThe Red WheelbarrowPied Beauty"

    12. WOW. i never thought that literature was so complex. the cadence that some of the play take on is mundane but still had me glued to the book as awhole. though this started out as a required class reading i completed on my own time.

    13. I received this book in A/P English in my 12th grade year. It is an instruction manual/collection of poems, short stories, etc. I have read through most of the book, including all of the stories at one time or another and many of the stories and poems multiple times.

    14. This is one of the best literature compilations I've ever come across. I've been lugging it around for years since my first college days and still find myself refering to it.

    15. The didactic explanations and dull questions at the end of the poems kind of took away the joy of reading poetry, but at least the selection is very nice.

    16. reading this with my AP lit class ya, most of the stories are really morbid, but i guess they're good for learning =P

    17. My favorite english teacher in the world snuck Dylan Thomas into my life. "rage, rage, against the dying of the light."

    18. So yeah, I read this in my English class in 12th grade, but it is still the best collection of short stories and poetry that I've found.

    19. AP Lit book fun stuff (there actually are some interesting things in it, but some of the stories aret pleasant all.
