Represents many texts in their entirety and in their earliest recoverable versions

Includes longer selections from some writers too scantly represented in the previous edition including Equiano Mary Barber and Anne Wharton

Additional works by major authors, including Pope’s Eloisa to Abelard, and a portion of Lucy Hutchinson’s Order in Disorder.

Writers such as Abiezer Cope, John Armstrong, and Ephraim Chambers, have been restored from the first edition

Includes new drama selections

Added timelines, an alternative listing of contents by theme, and updated head notes make this volume especially accessible to beginning students
