Testimonials


"The Bedford Anthology of American Literature makes smart choices about what to include and smarter choices about how to organize and interpret that material. It cares deeply about historical context, providing extraordinarily helpful timelines and lucid introductory remarks for each of its selections. More than this, it is beautifully designed and incredibly easy to use. Its inclusion of hundreds of images allows us to bring visual and iconographic literacies to bear on verbal texts—and vice versa."

"This anthology is exceptional. The Bedford Anthology has two major advantages: a realistic balance of texts that acknowledges the frequent practice of assigning novels and autobiographies in full, and an incredibly fruitful, focused approach guided by questions of print culture and its attendant questions of authorship, circulation, and reception of literary texts."

—Matt Cohen, University of Texas at Austin

"Its selections are judiciously made, its introductions sound and focused on the real-world concerns of authorship in American history, its contextual material diverse, enriching, and to-the-point. I think that instructors who want for their undergraduate students a manageable anthology with an essential and diverse selection of texts, engaging biographical introductions, and contexts that ground the literature practically in the world of reading, publishing, and authorship will find The Bedford Anthology of American Literature a very attractive choice."
