She has to decide whether to please a new charming stranger by showing him a bird to hunt or to go with her moral gut and save this rare bird. In the second short story Everyday Use by Alice Walker we see that Dee the oldest daughter comes back home to visit her mother and younger sister Maggie.

I liked these two stories but for different reasons. I appreciated A White Heron because it encourages the reader to look back on their morals and see if their minds would change by the influence of another person.

I feel like this story is good to teach students regarding moral dilemma. There is no content warning for this story. I enjoyed Everyday Use because of the valuable lesson it teaches on respecting your family and being proud of who you are.

This story gives the reader the idea that you need to be grateful for both you and your family past. This story as well has no content warning. I chose this text for a course on a critical approach to literature, and love the selection of poems and short stories in particular.

For my students, this text is at the right price point, and we'll make great use of the book as a whole. The indexing was done horribly and is basically unreliable.

For example, "Daddy" by Sylvia Plath is listed as pagewhen it is actually pages I have bumped into this several t This review is for the 5th edition of Literature: I have bumped into this several times during our study of poetry, and it's somewhat problematic.

If students are looking up a poem by title without an author's name handy, they really have no hope of finding the poem if the index has listed it incorrectly. Also, the "index of authors, titles, and first lines of poems" omits a number of poems both by title and first lineand even some authors.

Actually, I would be happy to be that human eye, so go ahead and message me, Pearson.

Excellent writing, low commitment, and classic reading in small doses. What is not to love?!Literature: A Pocket Anthology / Edition 4.
