BOOK DESCRIPTION:
Reading is action. Even though it is often done quietly and alone, reading is a profoundly social activity, and a vigorous and demanding one. There is nothing passive about reading; it requires attention, energy, an act of will. Texts have the potential for meaning, implication, response, and result; but the reader must activate them, give them life, and turn them from quiet print into a lively interplay of ideas and feelings. Reading makes things happen, usually in the mind and imagination, but sometimes in the larger world as well, for the process of reading involves decision, reaching out, discovery, awareness. Reading is an act of power, and learning how to get the most out of its possibilities can be an invigorating activity. For all its association with quietness, solitude, and the sedentary life, reading involves - at its deepest level - action and interaction.

The Shorter Fifth Edition includes 38 stories, 298 poems, and 13 plays. The selections includes many contemporary works and many works of cultural diversity, from Jamaica Kincaid's "Girl" to August Wilson's Fences, from Bharati Mukherjee's "The Management of Grief" to poems by Pat Mora and Alberto Rios.
