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.
