The Heath Anthology of American Literature, Volume 3
Paul Lauter, Richard Yarborough
Houghton Mifflin Company, 2006 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 838 pages
Unrivaled diversity and teachability have made The Heath Anthology a best-selling text since the publication of its first edition in 1989. In presenting a more inclusive canon of American literature, The Heath Anthology continues to balance the traditional, leading names in American literature with lesser-known writers and to build upon the anthology's other strengths: its apparatus and its ancillaries. Now available in five volumes for greater flexibility, the Fifth Edition offers new thematic clusters to stimulate classroom discussions and to show the treatment of important topics across the genres. A new HM ClassPrep CD-ROM with an electronic version of the Instructor's Guide and an extensive array of visual aids supports instructors as they prepare for lectures. The indispensable web site has been fully updated to include revised timelines, a multimedia gallery to support thematic clusters, and a searchable Instructor's Guide. New! A new thematic cluster, "Literacy, Literature, and Democracy in Postbellum America," shows the important role written literacy and literature played in Americans' participation in the nation's culture and politics. New! New selections by authors such as Mark Twain, Charles Wadell Chesnutt, Henry James, Sarah Orne Jewett, and Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins call attention to the range of thinking during this era about the literary arts. New! Writers new to this volume include Onoto Watanna (Winifred Eaton). Kate Chopin's The Awakening is presented in full length.
