Praise for the Broadview Anthology of British Literature, Concise

“I switched to using the Broadview Anthology of British Literature, Concise B years ago because it best models up-to-date và wonderfully circumspect ways of reading British writing since Blake. New majors are productively engaged và excited by the volume’s fine introductions, contexts sections, installments on the history of the English language and extended resources on the website; I can let them loose in a (wide) terrain that I know is well set-out, subtly teaching them by example how lớn start up research as well as how khổng lồ think about abyssal concepts lượt thích “modernity” or “Britishness.” I’m myself excited by the whole Broadview project, which exhibits deep commitment to dynamism in its ongoing revisions―lượt thích the new Concise B―improved through the involvement of advice from forward-thinking scholars at every màn chơi. I discuss that project with my students, who come lớn understvà their purchased anthologies as “the study of literature in process”―a phrase wherein all the nouns interact.” ― Romamãng cầu Huk, University of Notre Dame

A wealth of cultural and historical information is provided, và students will surely finish these introductory pieces with a profound lesson: context matters. The introductory essays show subtle expertise ... The editors bring British literary tradition to life with color illustrations và visual materials bring readers beyond the stereotypes of each era and inlớn a rich world where the past comes alive sầu.” ― Wendy Nielsen, Montclair State University
