The following materials are required and you must have them in hand on the first day of class. Broadview Press has agreed to package all of our books and they are giving us an amazing deal of $79.95 for all four books. Please contact me with any questions.

I expect everyone to have the following editions since we will be using supplementary material unavailable elsewhere. Our package discount is only available at the bookstore or through Broadview Press.

If you buy your books elsewhere, please double-check the individual ISBNs. You will not be able to buy the anthology elsewhere since it is a new edition but you should be able to get the other texts used. I recommend

The ISBN for the bundle is 978-1-4881-1139-6, and that includes:

  • The Broadview Anthology of British Literature: The Age of RomanticismThird Edition, Broadview Press (Individual ISBN:  9781554813117)
  • Jane Austen, Persuasion, Broadview (Individual ISBN: 9781551111315).
  • The Broadview Pocket Glossary (Individual ISBN: 9781554811670).
  • Mary Hays, The Memoirs of Emma Courtney, Broadview (Individual ISBN: 9781551111551).

Optional but recommended:

M. H. Abrams and Geoffrey Galt Harpham, A Glossary of Literary Terms, Wadsworth Publishing. This is a crucial part of any English major’s personal library but it is quite expensive “new.” I encourage you to purchase any used edition edited by both Abrams and Harpham.

MLA Handbook, it is a crucial part of any English major’s library. Please get yourself a copy of the eighth edition.  I will hold you to its guidelines. It is available as both a paperback and in electronic editions. Link to MLA website:
