Widely known as the anthology that best meshes tradition with innovation, THE AMERICAN TRADITION IN LITERATURE enters its fifth decade of leadership among textbook anthologies of American Literature. Literary merit remains the guiding principle of selection; and flexibility of organization, with Walt Whitman fully represented in both volumes, continues to be featured. The ninth edition incorporates many new classic and contemporary offerings, with a special emphasis on women writers and writers from diverse backgrounds.
