I see the Norton as the a period anthology Anthology for undergraduate teaching of Victorian Studies in a certain normative form — a version of the field in which, I hasten to add, I was trained, and that many practitioners of Victorian studies still teach. There is no discussion of how early explorers viewed the indigenous population they encountered; this material would provide a cultural context for readings and English literature thus help both faculty and students better understand the literature.
-- Appendixes: Literary terminology ; Geographic nomenclature ; British money ; The British Baronage ; The royal lines of England and Great Britain ; Religions in England ; Map: London from Chaucer to Johnson ; Map: London in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries ; Map: The British Empire, ca. So this time around, I decided to purchase the triple volume. Modularity rating: 4 The way the texts are sub-sectioned makes a lot of sense. Deidre Shauna Lynch is Chancellor Jackman Professor and Associate Professor of English at the University of Toronto.
The follow up in the terms sections, at the unit ends, also supports student learning. The introductions a period anthology authors and periods are superb and comprehensive, and annotations provide the information students need without interfering with their interpretation of the text. It makes a sincere effort at gender balance, has one author of color at the very end of the book, and is mum on any cultural issues that are hot-button topics today.
The outcomes listed in each chapter would require students to read and retain every work included in the anthology, which is unlikely to reflect how such anthologies are used. Clarity rating: 5 The introductions and other apparatus provided by the editors is clear and jargon-free, appropriate English literature college and senior high school students.
I would use this anthology as a free source for some of its better-presented texts: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Chaucer, Milton. The selections were comparable to those in the Norton Anthology, with the notable omissions of William Langland and Margery Kempe and the inclusion of only a small section from Thomas Malory.
Even Shakespeare, it should be noted, is generally taught in editions with helpful notes and margin glosses, and it is notable when these are entirely absent. While the included comedy is a great reading for gender relations and communication studies, some of his other works could also address racial or religious depictions of the times more directly.
Where I am a little puzzled is in some of the choices for translations of the primary materials: I'm happy to see the Chaucer passages streamlined into more modern spellings and translations rather than just splatting out the Middle English for students to sink or swim in, but why does the version of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight have such scant consideration--it contains thorns and yoghs and "v"s used instead of "u"s, all with no guidance to a period anthology student about these things.
Moreover, some of the famous writers of old English literature were Cynewulf and Caedmon. 'It was great fun,' Abrams said.
Interface rating: 5 Very good in this regard.
