Summary

As part of the Penguin Academics series, American Literature offers a wide range of selections with minimal editorial apparatus at an affordable price.

Longman is proud to announce the Penguin Academics Series Edition of American Literature. The Penguin Academics Series, in the tradition of Penguin Publishers, offers highly respected, highly affordable, trade-format books by preeminent scholars.

American Literature emphasizes its range of selections and minimal apparatus, challenging the existing books on the market by offering a briefer and less expensive book. Rather than including dry academic period overviews, American Literature uses a "Letter to the Reader" format to give students the contextual information they need for each major historical period. Through a packaging relationship with Penguin Classics, we can offer larger works without increasing the page count.

Features

  • Compact! The anthology focuses mainly on selections with very little apparatus.
  • Affordable! In keeping with the Penguin Academics Series, Longman is committed to keeping the cost well under that of traditional American literature anthologies.
  • Humanizing introductions. Written as "Letters to the Reader," these introductions offer students an accessible discussion of how to approach study of American literature as well as historical and contextual background.
  • Rich spectrum of selections. The table of contents includes the best from the canon as well as from newer and lesser-heard voices including Native American and African American writers.
  • Well-informed headnotes. These compelling portraits give students insights into each writer represented.
  • Esteemed author. Bill Cain is a highly regarded scholar of American literature.
  • Coming in February 2004.
