PDF/EPUB The Longman Anthology of British Literature Volume 2B The Ú moncler2018.co

Responding to major shifts in literary studies over the past thirty years The Longman Anthology of British LIterature was the first collection to pay sustained attention to the contexts within which literature is produced even as it broadened the scope of that literature to embrace the full cultural diversity of the British Isles 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 illumined by clusters of shorter texts that bring literary social and historical issues vividly to life Volume 2B focuses on the literature of the Victorian Age

    Not the greatest anthology for me I'm partial to the Nortons It drove me crazy how sometimes they would cut off poems and put the final few lines on the next page It was just annoying to read I found the selection okay but I think there was a lot left out that could have made it into the book
