9780205655106: Literature: A Pocket Anthology (4th Edition)

Always a good price with quality selections, the Fourth Edition of Gwynn's Literature:  A Pocket Anthology  continues that tradition.  Organized chronologically with a thematic appendix and streamlined apparatus, this anthology can be taylored to however the course is taught.  Individual Fiction, Poetry, and Drama introductions provide an overview for reading and analyzing each genre, defining key terms in context.  More than a third of the selections overall represent voices of women, people of color, and writers from cultures outside the United States, and a strong effort has been made to include work that reflects contemporary social questions and will stimulate classroom discussion.  New poems, stories, and plays are among the changes to the Fourth Edition.

From the Back Cover:

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. 

Why do you need this new edition?

  • New short stories include selections by authors not represented in earlier editions of this anthology, including Hisaye Yamamoto, Tim O’Brien, and Sherman Alexie, as well as new offerings from previously anthologized authors.
  • A wide range of new poems includes works by poets like Joseph Harrison, Allison Joseph, Sophie Hannah, and Emily Moore, as well as Iraq veteran Brian Turner–a 21st century soldier-poet.
  • New dramas by Milcha Sanchez-Scott and Arlene Hutton reflect current American concerns (immigration, feminism), and new selections by previously anthologized dramatists offer echoes of today’s politics (Sophocles’ Antigone), an adaptation by Arthur Miller (Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People), and a classic from one of America’s most admired playwrights, August Wilson (The Piano Lesson).
