For more than 60 years, instructors and their students have looked to Penguin trade paperbacks for state-of-the-art scholarship, accessibility, and fair prices. Longman, Penguin’s sister company, aims to meet those same expectations with textbooks in our series Penguin Academics.
We’ve created the Penguin Academics series with ease of use in mind–the books are conveniently portable and highly readable, with engaging typefaces and interior designs. Concise yet thorough in their coverage of the basics, Penguin Academics titles are ideal for use either by themselves or in combination with other books. A list of related Penguin paperbacks can be found at the back of this and every Penguin Academics title.
The ideal alternative to longer anthologies, this brief, affordable, and diverse collection of fiction, poetry, and drama provides a concise yet comprehensive introduction to the study of literature.
