The introductions khổng lồ each period are key to teaching a survey course, & those in the Broadview seem to lớn me to lớn be both more accessible to lớn students and more detailed in their portraits of each era than are those of the Norton. And Broadview’s selection of authors and texts includes everything I lượt thích to teach from the Norton, plus a good giảm giá else that’s of real interest.” — Neil R. Davison, Oregon State University

“Norton’s intros are good; Broadview’s are better, with greater clarity and comprehension, as well as emphasis upon how the language and literature develop, both reacting or responding to lớn and influencing or modifying the cultural, religious/philosophical, political, & socio-economic developments of Britain. The historian & the linguist in me thoroughly enjoyed the flow & word-craftsmanship. If you have not considered the anthology for your courses, I recommover that you vì so.” — Robert J.
