Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover The two-volume Broadview Anthology of British Literature: Concise Edition provides an attractive alternative to the full six-volume anthology. Though much more compact, the Concise Edition nevertheless provides substantial choice, offering both a strong selection of canonical authors and a sampling of lesser-known works. With an unparalleled selection of illustrations and of contextual materials, accessible and engaging introductions, and full explanatory annotations, these volumes provide concise yet extraordinarily wide-ranging coverage for British Literature survey courses. New to this volume are Samuel Beckett's Endgame and Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde ; new authors include Dorothy Wordsworth, John Clare, Tomson Highway, Derek Walcott, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The third edition now also offers substantially expanded representation of Irish, Scottish, and Welsh literatures, as well as contextual materials on Gothic literature, Modernism, and World War II. Material that no longer appears in the bound book may in most cases be found on the companion website; many larger works are also available in separate volumes that may at the instructor's request be bundled together with the anthology at no extra cost to the student. Features New to the Third Edition -- New longer texts including Dickens's performance reading of David Copperfield, Gaskell's The Manchester Marriage , Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde , and Beckett's Endgame -- New short selections from longer works including Eliot's Middlemarch , Shelley's Frankenstein , Barrett Browning's Aurora Leigh , and Tennyson's In Memoriam A.H.H. -- New bound-book author entries for Dorothy Wordsworth, John Clare, Emily Brontë, Thomas de Quincey, Walter Pater, Isaac Rosenberg, Tomson Highway, Derek Walcott, Jeanette Winterson, and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie -- New selections representing Literary Currents in Ireland, Scotland, and Wales in the Long Nineteenth Century -- New Contexts section on Gothic Literature including materials by Horace Walpole, Ann Radcliffe, and Jane Austen -- Literature, Politics, and Cultural Identity section includes numerous new authors and pieces, including work by Sorely MacLean, James Kelman, Gillian Clarke, Kamau Brathwaite, Kim Moore, and Warsan Shire
