Heath Anthology of American Literature, Volume 1 - 4th edition

Heath Anthology of American Literature, Volume 1 (ISBN10: 0618109196; ISBN13: 9780618109197)
ISBN13: 978-0618109197
ISBN10: 0618109196

Summary: A best-selling anthology since its first edition, this premier survey of American literature has influenced the manner in which the American literary canon is taught in classrooms across the nation. In response to readers requests, the editors of the Heath Anthology continue to develop and reinforce its greatest strengths: diverse reading selections and strong ancillaries. With the assistance of more than 200 contributing editors--all specialists in particular eras a
nd writers--the editors have updated biographical and critical information, as well as added new works of interest to both instructors and students.

The Fourth Edition features new writers and selections that highlight the divergent communities and diverse voices constituting the United States, both past and present. Volume 1 takes students from Native American oral literatures up to 1865, including Whitman and Dickinson. Volume 2 (which can be packaged with a free supplement of Whitman and Dickinson works) opens with African American folk tales and regional writers, and includes new sections on the Beat Movement and the Vietnam Conflict.
  • Full-length texts continue to be integrated throughout the anthology, including The Scarlet Letter in Vol. 1 and The Awakening in Vol. 2.
  • The revised textbook web site complements both volumes of the text through a new searchable, multimedia timeline with literary, historical, and cultural information; author profile pages; links to other sites for further research; and an online version of the Instructors Guide.
  • The Southern literature section has been expanded and includes two short stories by William Faulkner, "Dry September" and "Barn Burning," and an essay by H.L. Mencken, "The Sahara of the Bozarts." Increased coverage of border literature includes the work of novelist María Amparo Ruíz de Burton. In addition, gay and lesbian writers are featured throughout such as Dorothy Allison, James Merrill, and Richard Rodriguez.
  • The Cultures in Contact section has been reorganized along regional lines--New Spain, New France, Chesapeake, and New England--to facilitate the comparison of imperial agendas.
  • The section on the 18th century now places less emphasis on British and American perspectives of revolution and nationalism to reflect the text's inclusive approach to the field.
