    1 thought on “The Bedford Reader

    1. good, if dated, overview and guide to the art of essay writing full of a nice variety of voices, along with extremely valuable insights and fundamentals highly recommended to anyone who wants to write clearly especially orwell s essay politics and the english language which is one of the finest essays about writing every written if i think it s so damn good, how come only 3 stars because even though it s a great textbook, it s a little dense for general reading, and i would hate for someone look [...]

    2. This anthology turned me onto a lot of great, great authors among them, Dave Barry, Anna Quindlen, Annie Dillard, Brent Staples, Edward Said XJ Kennedy, in addition to having my reverse initials, you have great taste in literature Though I ve read some of your poems not so great at the poetry, XJ.

    3. I don t know why they made us buy this book We read very little out of it maybe 6 short essays , and the school wouldn t take it back at the end of the semester, so I was stuck with it But I enjoy reading so I m sure I ll go back and read of it later just for fun and exposure to new authors I enjoyed what little I did read This was a good anthology for class.

    4. A collection of greats short stories, essays, etc with acknowledgments by Maya Angelou, Russell Baker, Wm Buckley, Alistair Cooke, and on and on Authors included are James Harriot, Maya Angelou, Roger Rosenblatt, Mark Twain, and many NAMES Good reading.

    5. Not the edition I read in high school among new pieces is one by Sarah Vowell, for example , but an amazing text for a high school writing class Also joy to read at any age, I think I hope they still have Football Red, Baseball Green in there.

    6. I am using this in my College Writing class and it has a nice breakdown of different elements of writing and different styles, along with articles that can be used as jumping off points for related writing assignments and reflections Over all, a good resource for the classroom.

    7. I didn t read the whole thing, just the excerpts that were assigned however, I did enjoy each of the sections I did read, and I found that they were easy to focus on Usually text books are incredibly long and dull at least to me.

    8. A very solid reader that takes the time to go over rhetorical points and strategies The downside is that this results in fewer essays and stories, but it works great for an intro composition class.

    9. Good book if your composition pedagogy is traditional It gives you the basis essay formats and has some good reading Not too thought provoking though.

    10. Skipping all the commentary, this is a great collection of works and comments about writing from the authors.
