About

Overview

THE CONCISE HEATH ANTHOLOGY OF AMERICAN LITERATURE, Volume 1: BEGINNINGS TO 1865, Second Edition, brings the expansive, inclusive approach of Volumes A and B of THE HEATH ANTHOLOGY to a single-volume format. While other one-volume texts anthologize primarily familiar canonical works, the new CONCISE HEATH, Volume 1, offers a fresh perspective for courses in American literature and showcases the extraordinary diversity of literature written between the beginnings of the cultures of the “Americas” and 1865.

Features and Benefits

  • The newest addition to THE HEATH ANTHOLOGY OF AMERICAN LITERATURE family, this concise edition anthologizes literature written between the beginnings of the cultures of the “Americas” to 1865, with selections extracted from Volumes A and B of THE HEATH ANTHOLOGY OF AMERICAN LITERATURE.
  • “Rediscovered” excellent writers whose work has expanded the “canon” of American literature-including Christopher Columbus, Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca, Gaspar Pérez de Villagrá, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, Samson Occom (Mohegan), Judith Sargent Murray, William Apess (Pequot), Jane Johnston Schoolcraft (Ojibway), Vicente Pérez Rosales, Lydia Maria Child, Angelina Grimké, Elias Boudinot (Cherokee), Fanny Fern, Caroline Kirkland, Alice and Phoebe Cary, Frances Osgood, and a rich selection of songs and stories from 19th-century black, white, Native, and Hispanic communities.
  • DIVERSITY OF LITERARY FORMS AND GENRES A variety of longer works, including the Zuni Talk Concerning the First Beginnings, “The Apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe in 1531,” Edwards' “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God,” Franklin's Autobiography, Emerson's Nature, Melville's “Bartleby, the Scrivener” and “Benito Cereno,” Rebecca Harding Davis' “Life in the Iron Mills,” and Whitman's “Song of Myself.”
  • Many early Native American texts, as well as later Native speeches, sermons, and letters concerning both the conflicts over Indian “removal” and daily life among differing Native nations.
  • Well-known and less-available texts from the period of the American Revolution.
  • A unique selection of works from Spanish America, including literature from the 16th through the 19th centuries.
  • The richest selection available in an anthology of literary and controversial works concerning the conflicts over slavery and abolition.
  • THE IMAGE GALLERY This four-color section of photos-now at the beginning of the book-profiles the rich, varied life of Americans during this period: their amusements, the kinds of work they did, how they lived, the visual appeal of books they read, and images of authors at a time when authors had become celebrities.
