The Broadview Anthology of British Literature, Volume 2 Reviews


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

"Forty-five years [after publication], the Norton remains the 800 lb. gorilla in the classroom. But it faces vigorous and growing competition from other anthologies, notably The Longman Anthology of British Literature and The Broadview Anthology of British Literature.... The most recent entry in the field, the Broadview, [is distinguished by its] selections, longer introductions, more visual material, and a souped-up Web component." - The Chronicle of Higher Education

"The Broadview Anthology is wonderful. I'm very pleased-and my students love it too!" - Julian Hanna, University of British Columbia
