About

Overview

Unrivaled diversity and ease of use have made THE HEATH ANTHOLOGY OF AMERICAN LITERATURE: VOLUME E: CONTEMPORARY PERIOD (1945 TO THE PRESENT), Seventh Edition, a best-selling text since 1989, when the first edition was published. In presenting a more inclusive canon of American literature, THE HEATH ANTHOLOGY OF AMERICAN LITERATURE: VOLUME E: CONTEMPORARY PERIOD (1945 TO THE PRESENT), Seventh Edition, continues to balance the traditional, leading names in American literature with lesser-known writers. Available in five volumes for greater flexibility, the seventh edition offers thematic groupings of readings, called "In Focus," to stimulate classroom discussions and showcase the treatment of important topics across the genres.

Features and Benefits

  • A section of "Spoken Word Poetry," which connects a current trend to the oral traditions that form the origin of American literature in its earliest years.

Efficacy and Outcomes

Reviews

"The reason I chose to use the Heath Anthology is because it strikes a very good balance between ethnicities, men, women, and canonical and non-canonical authors. I have used it since 2002 for these reasons. The introductions to the sections are also very good for students because the introductions stress the social, economic, and political happenings of the period."

— Kathryn Brewer-Strayer, Stillman College

"Volume E adopts an effective blend of authors representative of different colors, cultures, and gender in its selections."

— Michelle Weisman, College of the Ozarks
