The Longman Anthology of World Literature, Volume 1offers a fresh presentation of the varieties of world literature from the ancient world to the early modern period.The editors of the anthology have sought to find economical ways to place texts within their cultural contexts, and have selected and grouped materials in ways intended to foster connections and conversations across the anthology, between eras as well as regions. The anthology includes epic, lyric poetry, drama, and prose narrative, with many works in their entirety. Classic major authors are presented together with more recently recovered voices as the editors seek to suggest something of the full literary dialogue of each region and period. Engaging introductions, scholarly annotations, regional maps, pronunciation guides, and illustrations will provide a supportive editorial setting.For anyone interested in world literature.

David Damrosch is Professor of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. He is the author of "The Narrative Covenant" and "We Scholars: Changing the Culture of the University" and the general editor of "The Longman Anthology of British Literature".
