" exciting achievement ... it sets a new standard by which all other anthologies of British literature will now have to be measured." - Graham Hammill, University of Notre Dame

"...I have been using The Broadview Anthology of British Literature for three years now. I love it-and so do my students! I'll say too that the support for instructors is excellent." - Martha Stoddard-Holmes, University of California, San Marcos

" excellent anthology. Good selections (including some nice surprises), just the right level of annotation, affordable-and a hit with my students. I will definitely use it again." - Ira Nadel, University of British Columbia

"With the publication of the The Broadview Anthology of British Literature, teachers and students in survey and upper-level undergraduate courses have a compelling alternative to the established anthologies by Norton and Longman. Having adopted the first two volumes for an early period survey course last year, I had no hesitation in repeating the experience this year. The medieval volume, in particular, is superb, with its generous representation of Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Norman literary culture, as well as its growing collection of texts from the too little-known fifteenth century. This is a very real intellectual, as well as pedagogical, achievement." - Nicholas Watson, Harvard University
