About This Book

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, and an unparalleled number of illustrations and contextual materials. Innovative, authoritative and comprehensive, The Broadview Anthology of British Literature has established itself as a leader in the field.

The full anthology comprises six bound volumes, together with an extensive website component; the latter has been edited, annotated, and designed according to the same high standards as the bound book component of the anthology, and is accessible by using the passcode obtained with the purchase of one or more of the bound volumes.

For the third edition of this volume a number of changes have been made. The Old English material has been substantially revised and expanded, including new translations by Roy Liuzza of "Deor, " "Wulf and Eadwacer, " and "The Battle of Brunanburh." A selection from Adrienne Williams Boyarin's new translation of "The Miracles of the Virgin" will be included, along with Sian Echard's translation of selections from Y Gododdin. Matthieu Boyd's translation of the first two branches of the Mabinogi is also new to this edition, together with several Early Irish lyrics.

The "Love and Marriage" Contexts section has been expanded to include additional material by Christine de Pizan and excerpts from Holy Maidenhood, and the "Religious and Spiritual Life" Contexts section now includes excerpts from Wycliffite writings. The selection of material by Sir Thomas Malory has also been substantially revised and expanded. In addition, the online component of the anthology includes several new selections, including "The Gifts of Men, " "The Fortunes of Men, " "The Feast of Bricriu, " material by Robert Henryson, and a broader selection of medieval drama.

The 
Medieval 
Period
xli
Page 
from 
the 
Gospel 
of 
St. 
Mark, 
Book 
of 
Kells 
(ninth 
century).

Like 
many 
early 
Insular 
manuscripts, 
the
provenance 
of 
this 
book 
is 
uncertain. 
The 
monastery 
at 
Kells 
in 
County 
Meath, 
Ireland,
was 
established 
by 
monks 
from 
the 
large 
monastery 
at 
Iona, 
off 
the 
coast 
of 
Scotland 
at
the 
time 
of 
the 
Viking 
invasions 
early 
in 
the 
ninth 
century. 
Among 
the 
many 
hypotheses
as 
to 
the 
book’s 
origin 
are 
theories 
that 
the 
monks 
brought 
the 
book 
with 
them 
from
Iona 
in 
its 
present 
(unfinished) 
state; 
that 
some 
work 
was 
done 
at 
Iona, 
some 
at 
Kells;
and 
even 
that 
the 
book 
originated 
at 
Lindisfarne 
in 
the 
north-east 
of 
England. 
This
uncertainty 
indicates 
the 
high 
degree 
of 
interaction 
among 
the 
monasteries 
of 
Ireland,
Scotland, 
and 
northern 
England 
during 
this 
period.
