Summary

The 21st century text for teaching world literature. In 1985, a group of teachers at the University of New Mexico first developed and then team-taught a pilot world literature course funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities -- one that emphasized the need for contexts, connections, and a true world focus. The experience they had led to Western Literature in a World Context (1995), now dynamically re-imagined, re-designed, and re-structured as The Bedford Anthology of World Literature (2003) by authors with a combined century of experience teaching this course. This anthology is the first to provide students with the help they need to read, comprehend, and enjoy the best the world has to offer, including thematic groupings of literature from all over the world, social and historical contexts, comparative timelines, abundant maps and images, and much more.

Handsome new 2-color design -- with a larger trim size -- showcases literature, highlights pedagogical features, and sets off the many maps and illustrations to best effect.

Unparalleled collection of complete longer works, plays, prose, and poems represents the best literature of all time available in English or English translations, from around the globe. Literature from Asia, the Middle East, the Mediterranean, Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, and the Americas is organized first chronologically and then geographically.
