This article presents instructions by the author for writing a response to literature. You can't respond to a work of literature until you've read it, so the first step in writing is to read. Because active reading requires you to think about the text as you go along, it can be helpful to read with a pencil in hand. Every point in your argument must be supported by quotations from the text. It's crucial, then, that you learn how to introduce and punctuate a quotation properly. Quotations that are more than 10 lines long should be indented and single-spaced. INSET: RESPONSE TO LITERATURE STEP-BY-STEP.
