Broadview Anthology of British Literature: The Age of Romanticism

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. New to the second edition of volume four of The Broadview Anthology of British Literature are works of short fiction by Mary Shelley ("The Mortal Immortal"), James Hogg ("The Expedition to Hell") and Matthew "Monk" Lewis (“The Anaconda”). Thomas Paine appears in the anthology for the first time, and Sir Walter Scott is now included in the bound book rather than the website component; a Scott short story ("The Eve of St. John") has been added. Other additions include Blake's "The Song of Liberty," several poems by Anna Letitia Barbauld, and "Contexts" sections of background materials on "The Natural, The Beautiful, and the Sublime" and "The Industrial Revolution."
