Used this to teach a dual enrollment English 112 class and found it to be a great collection. Has some great in-depth poetry sections. And the selection of short stories was wonderful. The drama section includes some nice, succinct plays. My students were pleasantly surprised by how much they enjoyed readings from this text.
We are still reading this book in class lol. But, so far, I've really liked it. It has some good stories; it has some bad. It all just depends on the reader. I do hope that there will be several more good stories in this that I'll have to read as I finish my semester in AP Literature and Composition.
My husband got this as part of an AP training class for preview. I read it for the short stories, which I loved, especially since there were several stories from some of my favorite authors which I hadn't yet read. I skipped the plays section, as I really dislike plays.
