Description: The two-volume Broadview Anthology of British Literature, Concise Edition provides an attractive alternative to the full six-volume anthology. Though much more compact, the concise edition nevertheless provides instructors with substantial choice, offering both a strong selection of canonical authors and a sampling of lesser-known works. With an unparalleled number of illustrations and contextual materials, accessible and engaging introductions, and full explanatory annotations, the concise edition of this acclaimed Broadview anthology provides focused yet wide-ranging coverage for British literature survey courses.Highlights of Volume A include: R.M. Liuzza's acclaimed translation of Beowulf, along with new translations by Liuzza of Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People and the Exeter Book Elegies; translations of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and Marie de France's Lanval, set in parallel-column format with the original texts; a section on "The Elizabethan Sonnet and Lyric" showing the development of the sonnet both in England and across various countries in continental Europe; a new approach to King Lear, in which the full Folio version is printed along with three key scenes from the Quarto version (presented in parallel-column format); a section on "Laboring Class Poets" that includes poems by Mary Collier, Stephen Duck, and Mary Leapor; and the complete text of William Wycherley's key eighteenth-century drama The Country Wife.
