Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0333464788, Paperback)

The selection of writing in this anthology aims to provide a detailed literary picture of society in a period of change and a vivid portrayal of the the Restoration and 18th century. The variety of genres in this period is illustrated, from the fiction of Defoe and Fielding to the satires of Dryden and Pope and the comedies of Congreve and Sheridan. Major figures such as Swift and Johnson are represented, while letters and diaries - including those of women writers such as Fanny Burney and Lady Mary Wortley Montague - provide social background. Macmillan Anthologies of English Literature provide extracts from the literature of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland, covering all periods right up to the present day. Each anthology contains a representative and wide-ranging selection of drama, poetry and prose arranged chronologically, supported by full notes and biographical details of authors included.
