Both an American and a global anthology, BRIDGES is ideally suited for today's composition and literature courses. It includes over 300 stories, poems, and plays, and features an exciting mix of writers - those who have been the world's literary standard bearers, as well as those who are relatively less known. Together, these diverse, provocative readings encourage the reconciliation of viewpoints - bridges - discovered within them. Thematically arranged, BRIDGES contains a rich mix of contemporary and classic selections, works from men and women, ethnic American, European, Asian, Latin American, and African writers.
