Damrosch, David, Dettmar, Kevin J. H., Carroll, Clare


VOLUME A Developed by a distinguished editorial team, this highly teachable anthology features comprehensive coverage of the enduring works of the British literary tradition from the Middle Ages through the Restoration and the eighteenth century. Major works by the most influential authors --Chaucer, Spenser, Shakespeare, Sidney, Donne, Milton, Behn, Swift, Pope, Johnson--are offered alongside shorter pieces in contextual groupings that add insight to the work and its themes. FEATURES Major prose works appear in their entirety, together with a wealth of poetry and drama--from Shakespeare's "The Tempest "to a generous selection of poems from Sidney's "Astrophil and Stella "to Swift's "Gulliver's Travels." Highly regarded translations of classic texts include Alan Sullivan and Tim Murphy's translation of "Beowulf, " J. R. R. Tolkien's translation of "Sir Gawain and the Green "Knight, and a modern translation of Chaucer's General Prologue from "The Canterbury Tales "that appears alongside the Middle English translation. "Perspectives" sections shed light on the period as a whole and link with immediately surrounding works, providing a historical point of entry and reference to modern readers. For example, "Perspectives: Tracts on Women and Gender" in the Early Modern section contains pieces by Desiderius Erasmus, Thomas Campion, and Margaret Tyler. Shorter groupings in , .."and Its Time" sections show major works in the context of their own era. ""Piers Plowman "and Its Time: The Rising of 1381" appears in the Medieval section with "Three Poems on the Rising of 1381 "and a section of John Gower's "The Voice of One Crying." "Responses" pairings demonstrate the influence of literary masterpieces on subsequent authors. Pairings include a selection of John Gardiner's "Grendel "to go with "Beowulf "and Sir Walter Raleight's "The Nymph's Reply to the Shepherd" to accompany Christopher Marlowe's "The Passionate Shepherd to His Love." Numerous illustrations, both black-and-white and color plates, provide graphic examples and illustrations of literarytexts.
