From the Back Cover:

VOLUME B

 

Developed by a distringuished editorial team, this highly teachable anthology features comprehensive coverage of the enduring works of the British literary tradition from the Romantics through the twentieth century.  Major works by the most influential authors--Barbauld, Bake, Wollstonecraft, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, Barrett Browning, Browning, Tennyson, Yeats, Woolf, Joyce, Eliot, Walcott, Heaney, and Rushdie--are offered alongside shorter pieces in contextual groups that add insight to the wrok and its themes.

 

FEATURES

  • Major prose works appear in their entirely, together with a wealth of poetry and drama--from Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest to a generous selection of poems from Blake's Songs of Innocence and of Experience to Conrad's Heart of Darkness.
  • "Perspectives" sections shed light on the period as a whole and link with immediately surrounding works, providing a historical point of entry and reference to modern readers.  For example, "Perspectives:  The Abolition of Slavery and the Slave Trade" in the Romantics section contains peices by Mary Prince, a West indian slave, and William Wordsworth.
  • Shorter groupings in "...and Its Time" sections show major works in the context of their own era.  For example, "Manfred and Its Time The Byronic Hero" appears with an excerpt from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and in a section of The Widow of Crescentius by Felicia Hemans.
  • "Responses" pairings demonstrate the influence of literary masterpieces on subsequent authors.  Pairings include a selection of Chinua Achebe's "An Image of Africa" to go with Conrad's Heart of Darkness and Fadwa Tuqan's "In the Aging City" to accompany Eliot's The Waste Land. 
  • Numerous illustrations, both black-and-white and color plates, provide graphic examples and illustrations of literary texts.
