ENGL 1260 Introduction to Women's Literature (Cassity): Anthology Examples


What is an anthology, anyway? An anthology is a published collection of writings, typically by various authors, selected for their quality and because either the writers or works share key characteristics. These anthologies available electronically through the library can give you an idea of how to structure your final assignment. Though they may vary somewhat in format, most will include a headnote with biographical information and editorial information; the text sample; and footnotes with relevant definitions or historical context.
