Overview

This 4,500-page collection presents the finest literature produced in Great Britain from the Middle Ages through the twentieth century. It has been edited and annotated by six eminent critics and scholars. The editors contribute short period introductions, biographical and critical pieces for major authors, and essays preceding major selections. The Anthology demonstrates the continuity of English literature by selection, allusion, and comparison, and encourages the study of recurrent patterns or themes both within and across periods. For each period, a bibliography, an index, and a glossary of literary and historical terms have been compiled. Almost three hundred illustrations are included to represent important artistic achievements of each period and to show the relationship between images in language and in pictures.
