An entire world of literature in a compact, teachable anthology

Designed to offer a clear, concise, and accessible way to explore the familiar and unfamiliar territories of world literature, this two-volume version of The Bedford Anthology of World Literature offers students and teachers a broad and carefully balanced selection of literary works supported by extensive historical background and generous contextual materials.

"The range of texts and topics is truly admirable. The variety of sources also allow for fertile cross-cultural comparisons."
— Robin Mitchell-Boyask, Temple University
