Summary

Unrivaled diversity and teachability have made The Heath Anthology a best-selling text since the publication of its first edition in 1989. In presenting a more inclusive canon of American literature, The Heath Anthology continues to balance the traditional, leading names in American literature with lesser-known writers and to build upon the anthology's other strengths: its apparatus and its ancillaries. Now available in five volumes for greater flexibility, the Fifth Edition offers new thematic clusters to stimulate classroom discussions and to show the treatment of important topics across the genres. A new HM ClassPrep CD-ROM with an electronic version of the Instructor's Guide and an extensive array of visual aids supports instructors as they prepare for lectures. The indispensable web site has been fully updated to include revised timelines, a multimedia gallery to support thematic clusters, and a searchable Instructor's Guide. New! Two new thematic clusters, "America in the European Imagination" and "Cultural Encounters: A Critical Survey" explore imaginary European constructions of a yet untouched American landscape. In addition, the new cluster, "On Nature and Nature's God," examines the shift from a reliance on religious faith to the use of reason and the scientific method. "On The Discourse of Liberty" surveys the notions and realities of American independence. Selections from authors such as Thomas Morton, Anne Bradstreet, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, and Cotton Mather examine notions of identity and ideology in American literary history. New! Rich, new selections in the Native American Oral Narrative and Poetry sections depict the effects of cross-cultural encounters along the American frontier. Early selections reflect the growing interest among scholars in works of American literature that were not originally written in English and their impact upon the predominantly English literatures of North America. The section entitled "Cultures in Contact" is organized along regional lines, such as "New Spain," "New France," "Chesapeake," and "New England," to facilitate the comparison of different imperial agendas.
