In Search of Another Way: Using Proust to Teach First-Year Composition
Moser, Janet
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v36 n1 p57-68 Sep 2008
Rhetorically challenging literature can be made to serve the purposes of first-year composition in new ways. Excerpts from the novels of Marcel Proust that focus on the author's characteristic scrutinizing, reflexive attention to style work successfully as models for assisting writers in acquiring the habits of reading and re-reading, and of writing, revisiting, and revising, which are essential to well-written prose. (Contains 3 notes.)
