Summary

The Fourth Edition of The Longman Anthology of British Literature continues its tradition of presenting works in the historical context in which they were written. This fresh approach includes writers from the British Isles, underrepresented female authors, "Perspectives" sectionsthatshed light on the period as a whole and link with immediately surrounding works to help illuminate a theme, "And Its Time" clusters that illuminate a specific cultural moment or a debate to which an author is responding, and "Responses" in which later authors respond to one or more texts from earlier works. New works include William Baldwin's Beware the Cat (the 1st English novel), Edmund Spenser's The Faerie Queene, Books 6 and the Two Cantos of Mutability and William Shakespeare's Othello and King Lear.

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.
