Adapted from our anthology, which has been extremely popular. The Compact Bedford Introduction to Literature, also known as Literature to Go, is a concise and affordable collection of short stories, poems, and plays that comes with extensive critical reading and writing support. The book contains literature from a wide variety of time periods, cultural backgrounds, and voices, and it also serves as a comprehensive guide to close reading, critical thinking, and writing thoughtfully about literature. The mission of the anthology, which is to present literature as a living art form that is constantly evolving, is continued in the fourth edition by the inclusion of 132 brand-new works of fiction, poetry, and drama.
