Summary: 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 l...iterary 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 textsinclude Richmond Lattimore's translation ofThe Iliad, Robert Fagles'translation ofThe Odyssey, Alan Sullivan and Tim Murphy's translation ofBeowulf, J. R. R. Tolkien's translation ofSir Gawain and the Green Knight, and Edward Seidensticker's translation of Shikibu'sThe Tale of Genji. Major works appear in their entirety--a verse translation ofThe Epic of Gilgamesh, Homer'sOdyssey, Dante'sInferno, and Achebe'sThings Fall Apart, among others--along with extensive, teachable selections from longer works such asDon Quixoteand both parts of Geothe'sFaust.
