PREFACE (in brief)

For the instructor or students surveying the literature of the United States in a single academic quarter or semester, Concise Anthology of American Literature offers a practical alternative to the extended two-volume Anthology of American Literature. It also provides a convenient collection of American poetry, drama, fiction, and other prose for use in a two-semester or three-quarter survey course in conjunction with a collection of separate novels or in other works.

The criteria by which works are included in Concise Anthology of American Literature are the same as those for the parent text which are that the works should be of significant literary and cultural significance in the history of American letters. The briefer anthology, however, must discriminate even more carefully that its longer companion simply because it cannot contain an equal number of important selections – especially those selections that consist of long works presented in their entireties. It must achieve a balance between including works of the highest literary and cultural significance while regretfully omitting longer works in the name of practicality.
