The Heath Anthology of American Literature: Concise Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new anthology brings the expansive, inclusive approach of the two-volume Heath to the single-volume format. While other one-volume texts continue to anthologize primarily canonical works, the new Heath Concise offers a fresh perspective for the course, based on the successful hallmarks of the two-volume set.Headnotes and Section Introductions provide students with background information, while mini-thematic units--including Literature of the Vietnam Conflict-- allow for in-depth study.Unlike many one-volume anthologies, The Heath features fewer excerpts of long works and a rich selection of short works teachable in every classroom.A comprehensive web site offers abundant student and instructor resources, such as author information; an interactive timeline of literature, history, and culture; and an archive of Heath Newsletter articles.
