1 Review
The new edition of this successful anthology continues to challenge the boundaries of eighteenth-century literary study whilst thorough revisions make it even more useful to teachers and students.

  • Includes more Dryden and Behn, as well as Congreve's The Way of the World.

  • Retains the historical span and range of texts, canonical and previously marginalised, that made the first edition so attractive.

  • Continues to represent many texts in their entirety, including Samuel Johnson's Rasselas, Jonathan Swift's A Tale of a Tub, Eliza Haywood's Fantomina, Aphra Behn's Oronooko, Alexander Pope's Rape of the Lock and Daniel Defoe's Shortest Way with the Dissenters.

  • An edited volume of critical essays, British Literature 1640-1789: A Critical Reader (Blackwell Publishers, 1999), accompanies this anthology providing the material for a complete course.
