The Heath Anthology of American Literature: Concise Edition

1 Review

This new anthology brings the expansive, inclusive approach of the two-volume Heath to the single-volume format. While other one-volume texts continue to anthologize primarily canonical works, the new Heath Concise offers a fresh perspective for the course, based on the successful hallmarks of the two-volume set.

  • Unlike many one-volume anthologies, The Heath features fewer excerpts of long works and a rich selection of short works teachable in every classroom.

This is such a wretched book. The sections are so boring and you have to slap yourself to stay awake. Do not read this....even if you have to.
