New features includes a broader representation of women writers of all historical periods such as Marie de France, Frances Burney, Charlotte Smith, Mary Robinson, Elizabeth Gaskell and Eavan Boland; a richer treatment of post-Colinial writers such as Jean Rhys, Chinua Achebe, V.S. Naipaul, Anita Desai, Les Murray, Salman Rushdie, J.M. Coetzee and Paul Mundoon; and a new set of cultural and thematic Issues such as The Literature of the Sacred, The Science of Self and World, Slavery and Freedom, Revolution, Rights and Liberation and The Rise and Fall of Empire. The period introductions, author headnotes, annotations and bibliographies have been revised and many have been rewritten for this edition. The highlight of this edition is a new verse translation of Beowulf by Seamus Heaney.

Great for English majors
I needed this book for my english literature class and our school book store sold it for $60 and I got it from this website for only $9. It is very informative and worked out great for my class. It gives brief summaries on each literature piece and talks alot about the Tudor Dynasty and Queen Elizabeth...Hence she is on the cover. Also I loved the brief history summary pages for each century.
