The Longman Anthology of World Literature, Volume 2offers a fresh presentation of the varieties of world literature from the 17th century to the present day.The editors of the anthology have sought to find economical ways to place texts within their cultural contexts, and have selected and grouped our 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…

Blissful Yearning
from Don Juan, Cantos 2-4
I'm neither the loosening of song nor the close-drawn tent of music
Come now: I want you: my only peace
When I look out, I see no hope for change
If King Jamshid's diamond cup breaks, that's it
One can sigh, but a lifetime is needed to finish it
When the Great One gestures to me
For tomorrow's sake, don't skimp with me on wine today
I'm confused: should I cry over my heart, or slap my chest?
She has a habit of torture, but doesn't mean to end the love
For my weak heart this living in the sorrow house
Religious people are always praising the Garden of Paradise
Only a few faces show up as roses
I agree that I'm in a cage, and I'm crying
Each time I open my mouth, the Great One says
My heart is becoming restless again

I never lost as much but twice
Title divine-is mine!
There came a day at summer's full
It was not Death, for I stood up
After great pain, a formal feeling comes
I died for Beauty
I dwell in Possibility
I heard a Fly buzz-when I died
I live with Him-I see His face
My Life had stood-a Loaded Gun
