Unrivaled diversity and teachability have madeThe Heath Anthologya best-selling text since the publication of its first edition in 1989. In presenting a more inclusive canon of American literature,The Heath Anthologycontinues to balance the traditional, leading names in American literature with lesser-known writers and to build upon the anthology's other strengths: its apparatus and its ancillaries. Now available in five volumes for greater flexibility, the Fifth Edition offers new thematic clusters to stimulate classroom discussions and to show the treatment of important topics across the genres. A new Heath Anthology ClassPrep CD-ROM with an electronic version of the Instructor's Guide and an extensive array of visual aids supports instructors as they prepare for lectures. The indispensable web site has been fully updated to include revised timelines, a multimedia gallery to support thematic clusters, and a searchable Instructor's Guide. New!A new thematic cluster, "Humor of the Old Southwest," features works by Davy Crockett, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Alice Cary. New!New authors include Major George Lowery, the second chief of the Eastern Cherokee; John Ross; Lorenzo de Zavala; and Nancy Gardner Prince. New!New selections include "The Maldive Shark," by Herman Melville, "Ar'n't I a Woman?" by Sojourner Truth, and "Hints to Young Wives" by Fanny Fern (Sara Willis Parton). New!Walt Whitman's "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry," previously omitted from important literary canons, is offered as a rich selection of the "American Renaissance." Longer works such as Hawthorne'sThe Scarlet Letter,and Melville's "Benito Cereno" and "Billy Budd, Sailor" are featured in their full-length versions.
