About The Author

Sylvan Barnet

Sylvan Barnet

Sylvan Barnet was a Shakespearean scholar and an American literary critic. He was also a Fletcher Professor of English Emeritus at Tufts University.

Barnet is the author of numerous books and articles on Shakespeare. He is the author of A Short Guide to Shakespeare, the general editor of the Signet Classics Shakespeare, and has written many textbooks. He is the co-author with William Burto of occasional essays on aspects of Japanese art. He has also written books about the art of writing.

Critical Thinking, Reading, and Writing, Ninth edition is a compact but complete guide to argumentation and critical thinking. Comprising the text portion of the widely adopted Current Issues and Enduring Questions, it draws on the authors’ dual expertise in comprehensive rhetorical strategies and effective persuasive writing to help college students move from critical thinking to argumentative and researched writing. This extraordinarily versatile textbook includes comprehensive coverage of classic and contemporary approaches to argument, from Toulmin to Aristotelian, to a new chapter on rhetorical analysis of pop culture texts, as well as 35 readings (including e-Pages that allow students to take advantage of working with multimodal arguments on the Web), and a casebook on the individual and the state. This affordable guide can stand alone or supplement a larger anthology of readings.

Authors: Sylvan Barnet, John O’Hara and Hugo Bedau
