For the second edition of this volume a considerable number of changes have been made. Henry Fielding's Tragedy of Tragedies has been added, as has a new section of material from eighteenth-century periodicals. A new Contexts section entitled "Transatlantic Currents" includes writings by such figures as Paine, Franklin, and Price, as well as material on the slave trade. The Contexts sections on "Town and Country" and on "Mind and God, Faith and Science" have also been expanded; a variety of writings on the Royal Society and other scientific matters have been added to the latter. Additional chapters from Equiano's Interesting Narrative have been added, and there are new selections by Samuel Johnson (including his "Letter to Lord Chesterfield" and facsimile pages from the Dictionary). Book 3 from Gulliver's Travels has been added; that work now appears in its entirety. There are also additional selections by Pope, Pepys, and Astell.
The Castle of Otranto and The Witlings have been moved from the bound book to the website component of the anthology. (Both are available as volumes in the Broadview Editions series, and may be added at a very modest additional cost in a shrink-wrapped combination package.)

"… an exciting achievement … it sets a new standard by which all other anthologies of British literature will now have to be measured." – Graham Hammill, SUNY Buffalo
"With the publication of The Broadview Anthology of British Literature, teachers and students in survey and upper-level undergraduate courses have a compelling alternative to the established anthologies by Norton and Longman. … This is a very real intellectual, as well as pedagogical, achievement." – Nicholas Watson, Harvard University
"I will certainly order volume 3 for my Literature of the Restoration and the Eighteenth century survey.… The plain fact is that [the Broadview] has no serious or up-to-date competition. And you can quote me!" – John Rempel, University of Manitoba
"… I have been using The Broadview Anthology of British Literature for three years now. I love it—and so do my students! I’ll say too that the support for instructors is excellent." – Martha Stoddard-Holmes, University of California, San Marcos
"… an excellent anthology. Good selections (including some nice surprises), just the right level of annotation, affordable—and a hit with my students. I will definitely use it again." – Ira Nadel, University of British Columbia
"After years of cobbling together [materials] for my one-semester Restoration and Eighteenth-Century British Literature course, I have been prompted by the availability of this new volume to return to using an anthology. The volume balances the urge for comprehensiveness with a judicious selectivity…. The introduction is lucid, smart, and current…. Headnotes are deft … [and] annotations are unobtrusive but extensive and helpful." – Brian Connery, Oakland University
