"Robert DeMaria's British Literature 1640-1789: An Anthology will be the best choice of a classroom text for anyone teaching the New Eighteenth Century, which now stretches back with new comprehensiveness to include most of the seventeenth. DeMaria has responded to the broadening of the canon to include women and other excluded voices, and he has also preserved an excellent selection of the canonical masters. This is a balanced and intelligent, a rigorously fair and scholarly anthology which deserves to become the standard text in the field as we enter the twenty-first century." Professor John Richetti, University of Pennsylvania.
