This package includes "The Broadview Anthology of British Literature" - "Volume 2: The Renaissance and the Early Seventeenth Century", "Volume 3: The Restoration and the Eighteenth Century" and "Volume 4: The Age of Romanticism". In all six of its volumes "The Broadview Anthology of British Literature" presents British literature in a truly distinctive light. Fully grounded in sound literary and historical scholarship, the anthology takes a fresh approach to many canonical authors, and includes a wide selection of work by lesser-known writers. The anthology also provides wide-ranging coverage of the worldwide connections of British literature, and it pays attention throughout to issues of race, gender, class, and sexual orientation. It includes comprehensive introductions to each period, providing in each case an overview of the historical and cultural as well as the literary background. It features accessible and engaging headnotes for all authors, extensive explanatory annotations throughout, and an unparalleled number of illustrations and contextual materials, offering additional perspectives both on individual texts and on larger social and cultural developments. Innovative, authoritative, and comprehensive, "The Broadview Anthology of British Literature" embodies a consistently fresh approach to the study of literature and literary history. Highlights of "Volume 2: The Renaissance and the Early Seventeenth Century" include: a new approach to King Lear (the anthology presents not only the full Folio version but also three key scenes in parallel-column format, allowing students to understand how the textual issues involving Quarto and Folio versions may substantially affect larger issues of meaning). Highlights of "Volume 3: The Restoration and the Eighteenth Century" include: Eliza Haywood's "Fantomina"; Margaret Cavendish's "The Convent of Pleasure"; selections from Daniel Defoe's "Robinson Crusoe" together with contextual materials; and, Frances Burney's "The Witlings". Highlights of "Volume 4: The Age of Romanticism" include: Jane Austen's "Lady Susan", a lesser-known but wonderfully readable epistolary short novel; "A Hymn to Na'ra'yena" by Sir William Jones; and, in an exception to the anthology's general policy of including works in their entirety, Mary Shelley is represented by the last two chapters of "The Last Man" and by a selection of letters.
