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).
