The shorter edition of Literature: The Human Experience provides a broad range of compelling fiction, poetry, drama, and nonfiction in a compact, well-priced format designed to make teaching literature convenient for instructors and reading and writing about literature enticing for students. Timeless themes—innocence and experience, conformity and rebellion, culture and identity, love and hate, life and death—are presented through the context of connections and experiences that are enduringly human. A flexible arrangement of literature within each theme allows instructors to teach the text however best suits their classrooms, and the expert instruction and exciting selections will help to entice even the most reluctant readers. Enhancements to the shorter eleventh edition include expanded advice for reading and writing in each genre, new "Connecting" pairs and clusters that encourage comparative critical thinking by bringing together works from different times and schools of thought, and a new thematic chapter on Life and Death.
