Description

Now available for the first time in a Brief Edition, this classic thematic anthology has long been hailed for its exceptionally rich collection of essays, memoirs, stories, poems, and plays, and for its inclusion of classic and contemporary images.

 

Now available in a more affordable and accessible format, The Conscious Reader, Brief Edition brings together over 85 readings representing a wide array of culturally diverse authors and fascinating topics, a broad range of academic disciplines, and a unique mix of genres.  Authors range from Plato, Shakespeare, and Chief Seattle to Bob Dylan and Tony Kushner, with Notebook clusters bringing together related readings at the beginning of each unit.  Brief, flexible apparatus includes an introduction to each theme and helpful headnotes, discussion questions, and writing assignments for each selection. 

Features

  • Selections are grouped by genre-Personal Reminiscences, Essays, Fiction, Poetry, and Drama-within 9 universal themes that move students from questions about self-discovery and relationships to larger issues of culture, science and technology, globalism and nationalism, and the goals of human freedom and dignity.
  • Over 30 black-and-white photos provide challenging visual prompts for class discussion and writing.
  • An alternate rhetorical table of contents makes this a flexible collection for any teaching approach.
  • A detailed Instructor's Manual includes a discussion of every selection in the text.
  • Notebooks-collections of two or more related readings-introduce each thematic unit and grant more attention to the interrelatedness of texts, topics and images, providing opportunities for students to synthesize texts.
  • A provocative section on Globalism, Nationalism, and Cultural Identity reflects current social, educational, and moral concerns regarding the relationship between the individual, national government, and the world.
