From the Back Cover:

Developed by a distinguished editorial team, this  highly teachable volume presents a fresh and diverse range of the world's great literature in a single volume that links past and present, East and West, and literary and cultural contexts. Featuring major works by literary masters from the ancient world through the twentieth century, this concise anthology combines comprehensive coverage of key works of the Western literary tradition and the enduring works of the literatures of China, Japan, India, the Middle East, Africa, and native Americas to truly provide students access to the full span of the world's literature.

 

FEATURES

 

  • Compellling, highly regarded translations of classic texts include Richmond Lattimore's translation of The Iliad, Robert Fagles' translation of The Odyssey, Alan Sullivan and Tim Murphy's translation of Beowulf, J. R. R. Tolkien's translation of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and Edward Seidensticker's translation of Shikibu's The Tale of Genji.
  • Major works appear in their entirety--a verse translation of The Epic of Gilgamesh, Homer's Odyssey, Dante's Inferno, and Achebe's Things Fall Apart, among others--along with extensive, teachable selections from longer works such as Don Quixote and both parts of Geothe's Faust.
  • "Perspectives" sections focus on literary and cultural issues associated with one or more major works.  "Iberia, The Meeting of Three Worlds," for example, combines traditional Castilian ballards with poetry from Hispano-Arabic writer Ibn al-'Arabi and Galician-Portuguese author Martin Codax.
  • "Resonances" pairings illuminate a particular author or work, often in the form of responses or analogues from other centuries or regions. Examples include poems by Alejandra Pizarnik with Sappho and scenes from Aime Cesaire's A Tempest with Shakespeare's The Tempest.
  • Numerous illustrations, both black-and-white and color plates, emphasize the artistic and cultural developments of each period.
  • Fresh and up-to-date introductions, scholarly annotations, timelines, regional maps, pronunciation guides, and notes support the selections.
