This is a companion volume to One Hundred Great Essays, also edited by Robert DiYanni (humanities, New York U.). The new edition of this book has been considerably revised and updated; it also provides a new index of essays by rhetorical style (narrative, descriptive, exposititory, or persusasive) and theme. DiYanni has created an anthology of remarkably broad use that will appeal to students, teachers of writing, English, or the humanities, writers, and general readers. While this book varies somewhat from the longer version, it includes the same essays and covers the same ground in the introduction (history of the essay, tips on reading and writing essays), so teachers and students will use one or the other. As they do not differ greatly in cover price, the primary use of this book is for shorter or less reading-intensive courses, for readers who prefer a shorter book, and for courses using multiple textbooks rather than a single core textbook of essays.
