DREAMS AND INWARD JOURNEYS: A RHETORIC AND READER FOR WRITERS, 7TH EDBook
This best-selling collection of readings explores the theme of dreams, the imagination, and the reasoning mind. Dreams and Inward Journeys presents a rich mixture of personal and academic essays, stories, and poems. The readings touch on such topics as memory, myths and fairy tales, obsessions, sexuality, gender roles, technology, popular culture, nature, and spirituality. Beautiful, stimulating art opens each chapter to support the theme and provide prompts for prewriting.
Marjorie Ford (Stanford U.) and Jon Ford (De Anza College, Cupertino, California) present an updated textbook designed to help students explore their inner worlds--dreams, fantasies, and the unconscious mind--and the way society has influenced those worlds through various forms of writing and popular culture. The seventh edition contains 35 new readings, a rhetoric and essay development advice section, new "connection" and discussion questions, new ideas for writing, and a new MyCompLab companion website.
