Description

In all six of its volumes The Broadview Anthology of British Literature presents British literature in a truly distinctive light. Fully grounded in sound literary and historical scholarship, the anthology takes a fresh approach to many canonical authors, and includes a wide selection of work by lesser-known writers. The anthology also provides wide-ranging coverage of the worldwide connections of British literature, and it pays attention throughout to issues of race, gender, class, and sexual orientation. It includes comprehensive introductions to each period, providing in each case an overview of the historical and cultural as well as the literary background. It features accessible and engaging headnotes for all authors, extensive explanatory annotations throughout, and an unparalleled number of illustrations and contextual materials, offering additional perspectives both on individual texts and on larger social and cultural developments. Innovative, authoritative, and comprehensive, The Broadview Anthology of British Literature embodies a consistently fresh approach to the study of literature and literary history.

The full Broadview Anthology of British Literature comprises six bound volumes, together with an extensive website component; the latter has been edited, annotated, and designed according to the same high standards as the bound book component of the anthology, and is accessible at www.broadviewpress.com/BABL by using the passcode obtained with the purchase of one or more of the bound volumes. The six individual bound volumes are also available in any combination at special package prices.

Highlights of Volume 2: The Renaissance and the Early Seventeenth Century include: a new approach to King Lear (the anthology presents not only the full Folio version but also three key scenes in parallel-column format, allowing students to understand how the textual issues involving Quarto and Folio versions may substantially affect larger issues of meaning).

Editorial Reviews

"With the publication of The Broadview Anthology of British Literature, teachers and students in survey and upper-level undergraduate courses have a compelling alternative to the established anthologies from Norton and Longman. Having adopted the first two volumes for an early period survey course last year, I had no hesitation in repeating the experience this year. The medieval volume, in particular, is superb, with its generous representation of Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman literary culture, as well as its growing collection of texts from the too little-known fifteenth century. This is a very real intellectual, as well as pedagogical, achievement."

— Nicholas Watson

"Broadview's new anthology is one of the few anthologies to have a good selection of texts that includes both old favorites and lesser-known but still valuable works. It will give instructors a great deal of choice."

— Stephen Guy-Bray

"From the sample of Old English selections I've read, as well as the full and fascinating table of contents, this reasonably-priced anthology looks like a winner for courses surveying British literature from Caedmon's Hymn to Monty Python's Flying Circus and beyond."

— Roberta Frank
