  • Represents many texts in their entirety and in their earliest recoverable versions
  • Includes longer selections from some writers too scantly represented in the previous edition including Equiano Mary Barber and Anne Wharton

  • Writers such as Abiezer Cope, John Armstrong, and Ephraim Chambers, have been restored from the first edition
  • Includes new drama selections
  • Added timelines, an alternative listing of contents by theme, and updated head notes make this volume especially accessible to beginning students

Synopsis:

The new edition of this successful anthology continues to challenge the boundaries of eighteenth-century literary study whilst thorough revisions make it even more useful to teachers and students.


  • Includes more Dryden and Behn, as well as Congreve's The Way of the World.

  • Retains the historical span and range of texts, canonical and previously marginalised, that made the first edition so attractive.

  • Continues to represent many texts in their entirety, including Samuel Johnson's Rasselas, Jonathan Swift's A Tale of a Tub, Eliza Haywood's Fantomina, Aphra Behn's Oronooko, Alexander Pope's Rape of the Lock and Daniel Defoe's Shortest Way with the Dissenters.

  • An edited volume of critical essays, British Literature 1640-1789: A Critical Reader (Blackwell Publishers, 1999), accompanies this anthology providing the material for a complete course.
