The Longman Anthology of British Literature, Volume I: The Middle Ages Through the Eighteenth Century Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Key Benefit:  The Fourth Edition builds upon the strengths of previous editions with its sustained attention to the context in which the literature was produced and its broadened scope of literature that includes the full cultural diversity of the British Isles.  Key Topics:  Includes canonical authors and newly visible authors.  Extensive selections from previously underrepresented female writers are fully integrated.  New “Responses” readings group works that were based on earlier writings to link works across time and place.  “Perspectives” readings are broad groupings that illuminate underlying issues in a variety of the major works of a period.  Market:  For anyone wanting a fresh approach to the study and enjoyment of British literature.          

Book News Annotation:

The first in a two-volume set, this anthology brings together poetry, prose, and drama from the literary history of Great Britain, focusing on the Middle Ages through the Restoration and the eighteenth century, from Beowulf to Samuel Johnson. Damrosch (comparative literature, Harvard U.) and Dettmar (English, Pomona College) group readings chronologically and according to issues and themes like women and gender, related cultural debates, or texts in which later authors respond to their precursors. Also included are writings providing social context, color plates showing images that influenced literary creation, introductions containing historical context, and notes for each text. Major and lesser known authors like Sir Thomas Wyatt are included. This edition has new thumbnail sketches of daily life during each period, new texts by William Baldwin, Edmund Spenser, Shakespeare, John Donne, John Skelton, and others, the Irish epic The Tin B Cuailnge, new translations and groupings, and new response pairings.
