Half the length of other leading anthologies, and offered at a much lower price, the anthology reflects years of firsthand experience in the classroom and extensive research on what instructors are actually teaching in the survey course today. Prepared expressly for students and informed by the new understandings of and approaches to American literature that have emerged during the last 30 years, the anthology is lavishly illustrated and features several pedagogical innovations that help students engage with the literature.

Wiederentdeckung eines US-amerikanischen Kultautors Hollywood: nirgends gedeihen Illusionen prächtiger, nirgends werden sie rascher entsorgt. Hauptsache, die Show geht weiter. Dieser Roman ist eine herrlich respektlose Nahaufnahme der Traumfabrik, eine filmreife Parodie auf Starkult und kollektiven Selbstbetrug. Keiner hat das wahre Hollywood mit seinen Widersprüchen, Abgründen und Hell-Dunkel-Kontrasten schärfer erfasst als Nathanael West. In seiner Satire widmet er sich den Schattenseiten einer durch und durch künstlichen Welt, in der die Verlierer in der Überzahl sind: die ewigen Statisten, Sternchen, Schmalspurdiven und Reservehelden. Je zweifelhafter deren Aussicht auf das große Los, desto verbissener hängen sie ihren Illusionen nach – und überbieten sich in einer Parade der Peinlichkeiten und Selbstentblößungen. Einmal mehr besticht Nathanael West hier mit der hohen Kunst der Zuspitzung. Schonungslos bis zum Zynismus legt er das Urkomische im Tragischen frei und entlarvt seine Figuren als hoffnungslose Träumer, ohne sie dabei zu diffamieren. Wunsch und Wirklichkeit mögen noch so weit auseinanderklaffen, menschliche Sehnsüchte sind einfach nicht totzukriegen. So ist dieses Buch eine Demaskierung des neuzeitlichen Wahns, um jeden Preis ein Star werden zu müssen, und ein tiefer Seufzer angesichts evidenter Aussichtslosigkeit. Neuübersetzung

The second edition of volume 4: The Age of Romanticism includes James Hogg, Matthew Gregory Lewis, and John Polidori as well as new selections by Mary Shelley, Sir Walter Scott, Maria Edgeworth, Anna Laetitia Barbauld, and Percy Shelley. The new edition also includes two new sections of contextual materials. New to the bound book is “The Natural, The Human, The Supernatural, and the Sublime”—a section that includes not only a good selection of material from writers such as Edmund Burke and artists such as J.M.W. Turner but also material that may be less well known on topics such as changing human attitudes towards non-animals. New to the website is a wide-ranging selection of contextual materials on the Industrial Revolution, entitled “Steam Power and the Machine Age”. Additional highlights of this volume include: Jane Austen’s Lady Susan, a lesser-known but wonderfully readable epistolary short novel; “A Hymn to Na’ra’yena” by Sir William Jones; and, in an exception to the anthology’s general policy of including works in their entirety, Mary Shelley is represented by the last two chapters of The Last Man and by a selection of letters.
