"I am very impressed with this collection. It seems to me to have great pedagogical value on its own, and it would work splendidly with Gensler's [text] book. The selections are well chosen - both accessible and interesting. The inclusion of Continental writers is particularly to be applauded. - Robert Arrington, Georgia State University, USA
