Published in 3 volumes -MoreTHE AMERICAN TRADITION IN LITERATURE has introduced nearly two million students to the historic sweep of American Literature. Now,in its eighth edition,this leading anthology once again presents the best collection published. Published in 3 volumes - I,II,and the Shorter Edition (a single volume) - they are all available in both hard and soft cover. This revision balances the major writers with new and newly appreciated voices. Literary merit,as identified by the most current criticism,remains the guiding principle of selection. The headnotes and bibliographies have been extensively revised to reflect recent scholarship,and the new selections that have been added represent more fully early American literatrue and the latter half of the twentieth century. Now in its fourth decade,George and Barbara Perkins continue to create the standard by which all other American literature anthologies are judged.
