The Shadow Within
Houghton Mifflin, 1973 - 476 páginas
To think and write intelligently, one must become aware of the larger issues and problems that concern modern man. In order to provide a developing writer with a perspective that is broad, social, cultural, and historical, editors Cherry, Conley and Hirsch have compiled a wide variety of literary selections that include: essays (descriptive, narrative, argument and persuasion, exposition, definition, comparison and contrast, cause and effect, problem-solution, example and illustration, classification and division); short stories; and poems. Arranged thematically, selections explore the nature of man, his relationships to his natural and cultural environments, and his continuous search for a viable identity. Part one considers man's need to perceive himself as being of special significance in relation to the universe and the natural world. Part two deals with man's search for a viable identity through culture and civilization. Part three explores the role of modern technology in contemporary culture and the nature of the responsibilities it imposes on man. Part four examines mans use of his own creative and imaginative potential in his search for valid definitions of himself and of reality. Part five is concerned with man's need and capacity to achieve a new and viable harmony with a rapidly changing world--From publisher description.
