Teaching British literature: a companion to the Longman anthology of British literature
"The Longman Compact Anthology of British Literature" is a concise and thoughtfully arranged survey of British literature. Within its pages, canonical authors mingle with newly visible writers; English accents are heard next to Anglo-Norman, Welsh, Gaelic, and Scottish ones; female and male voices are set in dialogue; literature from the British Isles is integrated with post-colonial writing; and major works are illuminated by clusters of shorter texts that bring literary, social, and historical issues vividly to life. Readers interested in British Literature.
