Summary

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, "Literacy, Literature, and Democracy in Postbellum America," shows the important role written literacy and literature played in Americans' participation in the nation's culture and politics. New!New selections by authors such as Mark Twain, Charles Wadell Chesnutt, Henry James, Sarah Orne Jewett, and Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins call attention to the range of thinking during this era about the literary arts. New!Writers new to this volume include Onoto Watanna (Winifred Eaton). Kate Chopin'sThe Awakeningis presented in full length.
