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 HM 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, "Prison Literature," acknowledges this growing field of study with poetry and fiction by past and present inmates. New!New writers such as Jimmy Santiago Baca, Kathy Boudin, and Judee Norton are featured in this volume. New!Two new beat writers include Brenda (Bonnie) Frazer, who uses poetry to express her feminist stance on marriage and sexual politics, and Joyce Johnson, who is represented with a selection of her letters to and from Jack Kerouac. New!New works include a selection from The Autobiography of Malcolm X, "Recitatif" by Toni Morrison, "Laurel" by Alice Walker, and "Trust Me" by John Updike. New!A new play by Paula Vogel,How I Learned to Drive,is featured in the New Generations section, and plays such asA Raisin in the SunandThe Crucibleare presented in their full-length formats.
