Journeys through American Literature, a more modern version of the classic text Journeys through Literature, introduces students to the best of nineteenth- and twentieth- century American literature while enhancing their reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. A section from The House on Mango Street has been added to this edition.
Chapters include an overview of the literary period and genre, biographical sketches of the author, and descriptions of the literary period or tradition to which the author belongs. Exercises and activities improve language skills and critical-thinking skills, with the focus on the student's response to the reading. Overall, the text provides a framework for the interpretation of prose and poetry and emphasizes collaborative learning so that students become more independent, critical thinkers.
