The Longman Anthology of British Literature, Compact Edition is a concise and thoughtfully arranged survey of British literature for the one-semester course. 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. The Second Edition builds on the pioneering features of its predecessor, retaining a strong core of frequently taught works while continuing to lead the way in responding to the shifting interests of the discipline.

This is an excellent anthology, with generous selections, lively introductions, and beautifully reproduced color plates. Though published on "bible paper," there is very little bleed-through. It is an splendid alternative to the Norton Anthology, not only for its ample contexts sections and for its loving attention to both canonical and new writers (especially women writers of the Renaissance), but also for its favoring of complete works--More's Utopia, Sidney's Apology, etc. I've been using IB this semester, and though there are, as the (I think excessively) negative reviewer notes below, occasional errors, these are not unusual in massive endeavors. An old game in the 1950s used to be to send grad students in search of errors and typos in the standard literary critical books of the day. I'm sure these will be cleaned up. For now the book works especially well for "survey" courses and for upper-level, specialized courses, when supplemented by another paperback or two, or course packets.

The book pictured here is the first edition. Longman is now in its second edition. Both are excellent for their copious selection of canonical authors and inclusion of women writers and
sociopolitical contexts. The new edition also contains superb color plates and a few corrections;I have written elsewhere about it.
