THE MCGRAW-HILL BOOK OF FICTION takes a global approach to literature, providing a rich selection of narratives for your students. As well as discussing the elements, forms, and the pleasures of fiction, the book's introduction includes a section connecting various fictional texts with works of art and songs ranging from medieval to modern times. Furthermore, the book's anthology dedicates a section to myths, legends, and folktales from around the world. When these two special features are combined with a broad array of short stories and five short novels from the western tradition, the result is a text unparalleled in its ability to introduce students to the many interrelationships within fiction among genre, culture, and history.
