Recommend for lit studentReviewed in India on 23 January 2019
It is very good book, I bought when I started learning literature.
Great book horrible deliveryReviewed in Canada on 16 May 2014
The book is great! The delivery on the other hand was horrible. The book was supposed to be delivered Thursday, I had payed extra for the fastest delivery possible when offering at about 3am Wednesday morning and so Thursday I stayed home all day waiting because I needed it for school. The buzzer in my building was on the fritz but I had given my phone number so was expecting a call that never came. At five I went downstairs and there was a delivery notice saying they had attempted the second delivery but they could have only attempted once because they didn't try the day before and don't deliver twice in one day. I called ups they said there drivers didn't have phones and couldn't call me and that they had only made one attempt to deliver not two. They said I could change my delivery address but I just moved to the city so didn't have a friend close by that would be at home all day the next day so they said they could hold it at the closest depot which was and hour and a half from my apartment by bus. So I got up at 8 the next morning after working until 2 am because the delivery notice said they would attempt delivery between 1030 and 2, and I went and bought a new phone for my buzzer hoping that would solve my buzzer issue and I'd be able to receive the books. I got home at 9 set up the phone, hit voice record on my cell phone and laid it beside the new buzzer phone so I could run down, buzz myself and be sure it would work before planning to stay home all day and wait again and when I got downstairs to buzz myself there was a final delivery attempt notice place on the outside of my building and hour and fifteen minutes before the delivery window they had stated had began on the second attempt so not what should have been the final. Thankfully the lady on the phone the day before was incorrect and the book was being held near my place and not 90min away and could be picked up the next day but I was going away the next day until the Monday and wanted to read it before starting my class Monday on my trip. But in the end I got it Monday after my first class and love the book. I'll def never use Amazon again though!! Unless they change delivery companies
Step by step how-to for writing papers.Reviewed in the United States on 29 April 2016
I bought this in addition to my textbook for an Intro to Literary Studies class. It wasn't required but my professor was not clear about the mechanics of a literary paper, so it was just the step by step guide to writing papers that I needed. It tells you how to take notes and start thinking about writing a paper about each type of literature: prose, poem, drama, etc. Then it shows you an example paper and explains why it's a good paper. It's not an MLA guide, although it covered that, too.

Great for college studentsReviewed in the United States on 3 May 2019
Got this instead of wasting $150 on a physical copy. We used this book maybe 5 times in my LCS course at my university, would always recommend buying digital or used rather than a new copy you are going to waste money on.
