“Of all the anthologies available for introducing university students to the study of literature, this one stands apart as particularly valuable, comprehensive, and engaging.” ― Dana Medoro, University of Manitoba
“The Broadview Introduction to Literature presents a judicious selection of literature from around the world and across the centuries. ... The editors do not privilege one country, author, century, or genre over another. Rather, this anthology invites readers to consider markedly different ... orientations to the study of literature and the multiple ways writers present complex ideas and human experience.” ― Deborah Torkko, Vancouver Island University
“Offers a rich polyphony of voices that is sure to resonate with the diverse student body that constitutes the modern-day university classroom. ... The new Broadview Introduction to Literature has something for everyone, from the classical and canonical to the contemporary and quirky.” ― Lorraine DiCicco, King’s University College
“Provides a full picture of the breadth of literature in English. ... It is an excellent choice for any introductory college or university English literature course.” ― Jeoff Bull, Humber College
“This is an excellent text for a generalist audience of first-year students and for more advanced readers.” ― Patricia Rigg, Acadia University
“Informative, accessible, and far from dry, The Broadview Introduction to Literature encourages students to make the transition from literary appreciation to literary analysis and, equally importantly, to enjoy doing so. ... The anthology strikes me as very well thought out, very well laid out, and very cognizant of the needs and interests of its intended audience. I look forward to using it with my classes.” ― Vanessa Warne, University of Manitoba
“The editors of The Broadview Introduction to Literature have thoughtfully compiled a varied selection of works that provide an impressive range of national, historical, and cultural perspectives. Their choices reflect a rapidly expanding literary canon, and at the same time respect the diverse composition of most first-year university classrooms. This collection combines frequently anthologized texts with refreshingly unusual additions and includes a section devoted to poetry in translation, a rarity in anthologies of its kind.” ― Heather Meek, Université de Montréal
