The Longman Anthology of British Literature: The Romantics and Their Contemporaries

by David Damrosch; Kevin J. H. Dettmar; Susan J. Wolfson; Peter J. Manning


The Longman Anthology of British Literatureis the most comprehensive and thoughtfully arranged text in the field, offering a rich selection of compelling British authors through the ages.


With its first edition,TheLongman Anthology of British Literaturecreated a new paradigm for anthologies. Responding to major shifts in literary studies over the past thirty years, it was the first collection to pay sustained attention to the contexts within which literature is produced, even as it broadened the scope of that literature to embrace the full cultural diversity of the British Isles. Within its pages, canonical authors mingle with newly visible writers; English accents are heard next to Anglo-Norman, Welsh, Gaelic, and Scottish ones; female and male voices are set in dialogue; literature from the British Isles is integrated with post-colonial writing; and major works are illumined by clusters of shorter texts that bring literary, social, and historical issues vividly to life.


The Fifth Edition builds on the pioneering features of the previous four editions, expanding the strong core of frequently taught works while continuing to lead the way in responding to the shifting interests of the discipline.
