This book was so much better and more enjoyable and thought-provoking than I expected. I can't wait to teach it in a composition class. The many different writing styles that combine to make up Du Bois's argument--including personal narrative, organized essays with explicit theses and even a bit of fistion--would be an excellent example for freshmen writers. There's more than one way to skin a cat.
