Twenty-Five Great Essays, Third Edition

Robert J. DiYanni

Penguin Academics

Compact but complete–and always at a reasonable price!

For more than 60 years, instructors and their students have looked to Penguin trade paperbacks for state-of-the-art scholarship, accessibility, and fair prices. Longman, Penguin’s sister company, aims to meet those same expectations with textbooks in our series, Penguin Academics.

We’ve created the Penguin Academics series with ease of use in mind–the books are conveniently portable and highly readable, with engaging typefaces and interior designs. Concise yet thorough in their coverage of the basics, Penguin Academics titles are ideal for use either by themselves or in combination with other books. Related Penguin paperbacks can be found at the back of most Penguin Academic titles.

Robert J. DiYanni’s Twenty-Five Great Essays features a collection of eminently teachable and rewarding essays for today's college composition courses, including authors ranging from William Hazlitt, Frederick Douglass, and E.B. White to Susan Sontag and Annie Dillard. Combining commonly taught, classic essays with the best of contemporary writing, Twenty-Five Great Essays provides flexible options for every composition classroom, with selections chosen both as models of good writing and as appropriate springboards for student writing. A brief introduction explains the essay form and offers instruction both on reading essays critically and on the process of writing effective essays.
