In all six of its volumes The Broadview Anthology of British Literature presents British literature in a truly distinctive light. Fully grounded in sound literary and historical scholarship, the anthology takes a fresh approach to many canonical authors, and includes a wide selection of work by lesser-known writers. The anthology also provides wide-ranging coverage of the worldwide connections of British literature, and it pays attention throughout to issues of race, gender, class, and sexual orientation. It includes comprehensive introductions to each period, providing in each case an overview of the historical and cultural as well as the literary background. It features accessible and engaging headnotes for all authors, extensive explanatory annotations, and an unparalleled number of illustrations and contextual materials. Innovative, authoritative and comprehensive, The Broadview Anthology of British Literature has established itself as a leader in the field.

The full anthology comprises six bound volumes, together with an extensive website component; the latter has been edited, annotated, and designed according to the same high standards as the bound book component of the anthology, and is accessible by using the passcode obtained with the purchase of one or more of the bound volumes.

For the third edition of this volume a number of changes have been made. The Old English material has been substantially revised and expanded, including new translations by Roy Liuzza of “Deor,” “Wulf and Eadwacer,” and “The Battle of Brunanburh.” A selection from Adrienne Williams Boyarin’s new translation of “The Miracles of the Virgin” will be included, along with Sian Echard’s translation of selections from Y Gododdin. Matthieu Boyd’s translation of the first two branches of the Mabinogi is also new to this edition, together with several Early Irish lyrics.

The “Love and Marriage” Contexts section has been expanded to include additional material by Christine de Pizan and excerpts from Holy Maidenhood, and the “Religious and Spiritual Life” Contexts section now includes excerpts from Wycliffite writings. The selection of material by Sir Thomas Malory has also been substantially revised and expanded. In addition, the online component of the anthology includes several new selections, including “The Gifts of Men,” “The Fortunes of Men,” “The Feast of Bricriu,” material by Robert Henryson, and a broader selection of medieval drama.

Review:

Comments on The Broadview Anthology of British Literature: The Medieval Period:

“Broadview offers the best selection of Old English texts I’ve ever seen in an anthology of this nature ... Well done!” ― Robert W. Barrett, Jr., University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

“With the publication of The Broadview Anthology of British Literature, teachers and students in survey and upper-level undergraduate courses have a compelling alternative to the established anthologies from Norton and Longman. Having adopted the first two volumes for an early period survey course last year, I had no hesitation in repeating the experience this year. The medieval volume, in particular, is superb, with its generous representation of Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman literary culture, as well as its growing collection of texts from the too little-known fifteenth century. This is a very real intellectual, as well as pedagogical, achievement.” ― Nicholas Watson, Harvard University

The Broadview Anthology of British Literature: The Medieval Period offers remarkable features that make it an excellent choice for instructors. The anthology includes eight Canterbury Tales, compared to Longman’s six and Norton’s seven, enabling students to experience Chaucer’s generic and linguistic range much more fully. The footnotes to The Canterbury Tales are more comprehensive than those in either Longman or Norton, explaining clearly each pilgrim’s profession (not always included in other anthologies); pointing out ambiguous syntax and offering alternative readings. In addition, I was impressed that the editors indicate in the footnotes passages that are not included in Ellesmere, but are considered by some critics as late additions. This attention to scholarly detail models just the kind of accuracy we demand from ourselves and students while researching. The full manuscript page reproductions further enhance the students’ experience with medieval manuscript culture, opening the door to further discussion of this aspect of the written tradition. I especially appreciate the extensive and inclusive “Contexts” sections ... [Overall,] The Broadview Anthology certainly contains the most up-to-date and comprehensive selections of medieval texts, with excellent introductory notes and reader-friendly organization.” ― Eileen S. Jankowski, Chapman University

Comments on The Broadview Anthology of British Literature:

“ ... sets a new standard by which all other anthologies of British Literature will now have to be measured.” ― Graham Hammill, SUNY Buffalo

“With the publication of the Broadview Anthology of British Literature, teachers and students in survey and upper-level undergraduate courses have a compelling alternative to the established anthologies by Norton and Longman. ... This is a very real intellectual, as well as pedagogical, achievement.” ― Nicholas Watson, Harvard University

“ ... an excellent anthology. Good selections for my purposes (including some nice surprises), just the right level of annotation, affordable―and a hit with my students. I will definitely use it again.” ― Ira Nadel, University of British Columbia
