Always a good price with quality selections, the Fourth Edition of Gwynn's Literature:  A Pocket Anthology  continues that tradition.  Organized chronologically with a thematic appendix and streamlined apparatus, this anthology can be taylored to however the course is taught.  Individual Fiction, Poetry, and Drama introductions provide an overview for reading and analyzing each genre, defining key terms in context.  More than a third of the selections overall represent voices of women, people of color, and writers from cultures outside the United States, and a strong effort has been made to include work that reflects contemporary social questions and will stimulate classroom discussion.  New poems, stories, and plays are among the changes to the Fourth Edition.

Review: Literature: A Pocket Anthology (Penguin Academics)

User Review  - Joseph - Goodreads

an anthology of wonderful short stories and classic poetry perfectly filtered for the convenient and inconsistent literature buff like myself. Excellent writing, low commitment, and classic reading in small doses. What is not to love?! Read full review
