Editorial Reviews

“The Broadview Anthology is, quite simply, a breakthrough. From reproducing essential canonical texts to recovering unjustly forgotten ones, the editors offer a remarkably panoramic collection of American literature…. Meticulously researched and expertly assembled, the Broadview should be the new gold standard for scholars and teachers alike.”
Michael D’Alessandro, Andrew W. Mellon Assistant Professor of English and Theater Studies, Duke University

“This is a literary anthology for a new generation, one that meets students where they live: both on the printed page and online. … I will be teaching with this anthology, and am confident that my classes will be greatly enriched by its capacious vision.”
Hester Blum, Pennsylvania State University

“As Frederick Douglass’ experience teaches, an anthology, at its best, can be a point of entry into a world of literary expression, powerful and empowering. The Broadview Anthology of American Literature is exactly this. … What I like most about this anthology, though, is that it never forgets its most important audience: students. There is a wealth of material here that will help them imagine and reimagine what American literature could be.”
Michael C. Cohen, UCLA

The Broadview Anthology of American Literature sweeps impressively across vast early America…. The multiplicity of early American locations, languages, and genres is here on wondrous display.”
Jordan Alexander Stein, Fordham University

“I am eager to teach with this anthology! It aligns with cutting-edge research through its selections, its introductions, and explanatory notes, and the texts are supplemented with primary documents that encourage teachers and students to think critically and dynamically.”
Koritha Mitchell, The Ohio State University

The Broadview Anthology of American Literature breathes new life into the early American literature survey. Its selections present early American literature in all its rich, weird, inviting abundance. … So much thought has been put into every aspect…, from the selection of texts to their organization to their presentation on the page; it will be a gift to classrooms for years to come.”
Lara Langer Cohen, Swarthmore College

“… [M]y students LOVE The Broadview Anthology of American Literature. I am also so impressed with it—the emphasis on colonization/decolonization, the selections, the INTRODUCTIONS AND HEADNOTES!! It’s a superb anthology, and I'm looking forward to using it for many, many years. … The anthology is a triumph. It truly is.”
Rebecca Bravard, Florida Southern College

“Big and bold … an important new option for teachers and students of American literature.”
Maurice Lee, Boston University

“… Volumes A and B have wonderful choices, with the benefit of adding much more material through online links. The choices that the editors have made about popular culture and race are really welcome….”
Shirley Samuels, Cornell University

“Hemispheric, multi-generic, [and] vibrantly illustrated, … this anthology is dynamic. Its capaciousness and ample resource materials make for a text that is always … meeting its readers in new ways.”
Russ Castronovo, Tom Paine Professor of English and Dorothy Draheim Professor of American Studies, University of Wisconsin-Madison

“These two anthologies are by far the best of their kind I have seen. The range and diversity of authors, the rich historical contextualizations, the important and well-curated thematic ‘Contexts’ sections, and the careful and capacious scholarly insight that clearly animates the entire project make the volumes a superior choice for courses….”
Mark Rifkin, University of North Carolina, Greensboro

The Broadview Anthology of American Literature promises to be a dynamic addition to the genre—I’m very much looking forward to teaching from it.”
Michael Borgstrom, San Diego State University

“I find myself taken aback by, and quite thrilled with, the way The Broadview Anthology of American Literature embodies the problematic possibilities of the canon.… Let us read and re-read [it] … for all the problems and possibilities it so brilliantly offers us.”
David Kazanjian, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, University of Pennsylvania

“I’m very excited to teach from this new anthology!”
Megan Walsh, St. Bonaventure University

The Broadview Anthology of American Literature is an instructor’s dream for introducing students to the diversity and complexity of American literature. … This anthology is definitely a game changer in the study of American literature. I love it!”
Venetria K. Patton, Dean, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences and Professor of English and African American Studies, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
