Summary (From the publisher):

Harpercollins College Publishers is pleased to present the Harpercollins Anthology Series, a collection of three volumes of uncompromisingly high-quality literature without the customary high price tag.

This volume, Fiction, presents established works ranging from William Faulkner’s A Rose for Emily to Alice Walker’s Everyday Use. A comprehensive introduction offers insights into fiction and its elements—such as characterization, point of view, and theme—while contextual headnotes provide a backdrop for each story in the text. To complete the picture, an index of critical terms is included.
