Broadview Anthology of British Literature: The Restoration and the Eighteenth Century

In all six of its volumes The Broadview Anthology of British Literature presents British literature in a truly distinctive light. Fully grounded in sound literary and historical scholarship, the anthology takes a fresh approach to many canonical authors, and includes a wide selection of work by lesser-known writers. The anthology also provides wide-ranging coverage of the worldwide connections of British literature, and it pays attention throughout to issues of race, gender, class, and sexual orientation. It includes comprehensive introductions to each period, providing in each case an overview of the historical and cultural as well as the literary background. It features accessible and engaging headnotes for all authors, extensive explanatory annotations throughout, and an unparalleled number of illustrations and contextual materials, offering additional perspectives both on individual texts and on larger social and cultural developments. Innovative, authoritative, and comprehensive, The Broadview Anthology of British Literature embodies a consistently fresh approach to the study of literature and literary history. For the second edition of Volume 3 a considerable number of changes have been made. Henry Fielding's Tragedy of Tragedies has been added, as has a new section of material from eighteenth-century periodicals. A new Contexts section entitled "Transatlantic Currents" includes writings by such figures as Paine, Franklin, and Price, as well as material on the slave trade. The Contexts sections on "Town and Country" and on "Mind and God, Faith and Science" have also been expanded; a variety of writings on the Royal Society and other scientific matters have been added to the latter. Additional chapters from Equiano's Interesting Narrative have been added, and there are new selections by Samuel Johnson (including his "Letter to Lord Chesterfield" and facsimile pages from the Dictionary). Book 3 from Gulliver's Travels has been added; that work now appears in its entirety. There are also additional selections by Pope, Pepys, and Astell.
