Thematic Custom Text Starter List: Religion

Created for the convenience of instructors assembling custom texts, the following is an incomplete list of materials in The Broadview Anthology of British Literature that may lend themselves well to courses focused on the representation of religion in literature. Many other works in the anthology may of course be taught with such a focus. While this list is drawn from The Broadview Anthology of British Literature, instructors assembling custom texts are invited to incorporate materials from almost any of our anthologies. With the exception of readings that are in-copyright to a rights holder other than Broadview Press, the majority of material published by Broadview is available for inclusion. More than 400 stand-alone works are also available to be packaged with or reprinted in custom texts, from The Miracles of the Virgin to Paradise Lost, and from In Memoriam to The Scarlet Letter. If you are having difficulty finding the texts you need or would like help assembling your custom text, please contact custom@broadviewpress.com.
