Unrivaled diversity and teachability have made The Heath Anthology a best-selling text since the publication of its first edition in 1989. In presenting a more inclusive canon of American literature, The Heath Anthology continues to balance the traditional, leading names in American literature with lesser-known writers and to build upon the anthology's other strengths: its apparatus and its ancillaries. Available in five volumes for greater flexibility, the Fifth Edition offers thematic clusters to stimulate classroom discussions and to show the treatment of important topics across the genres. The indispensable web site includes revised timelines, a multimedia gallery to support thematic clusters, and a searchable Instructor's Guide.

The Heath Anthologies are known for their diversity, and this volume does not disappoint in that regard. I found the reading of this collection to be enlightening and enjoyable. Assigned to read this for a college course, I don't know that the average reader is going to pick up a volume like this, but if a professor is considering what anthology to recommend for an American lit class, they could do well in choosing this one. I discovered writers I had never heard of who I couldn't believe I didn't know about before finding them here, and I got fresh insights on the tried and true authors. There is representation of writers who don't always make it into the canon, making this truly universal.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
