A fresh take on the modes, showing that they are used in texts of all kinds, not just in essays written for first-year composition—and that they are central to all the writing, speaking, and thinking that we do.

Taking its title from “Once More to the Lake,” the classic essay by E. B. White found in all rhetorically arranged readers, Back to the Lake offers much that is new, from 40 readings never before anthologized in a composition reader to templates to help students get started.
