Description

THE RINEHART READER offers works that will challenge, inform, and simulate student writing. Many of the selections included are classics in the sense of being established works by many of our best writers, works that instructors have turned to as models of eloquence and power again and again. Within that standard of quality, the selections provide variety in voice and rhetorical categories. THE RINEHART READER provides ample material on reading and the writing process, the rhetorical organization that most instructors prefer, and an excellent selection of readings that have demonstrated their value both in literature and as models of effective writing.
