The Norton Anthology of World Literature, Volume B
The Norton Anthology of World Literature, Volume B: 100-1500 | Sarah Lawall
4 posts | 1 read | 2 to read
Leading the field once again, Norton is proud to publish the anthology for the new century, The Norton Anthology of World Literature, Second Edition. Now published in six paperback volumes (packaged in two attractive slipcases), the new anthology boasts slimmer volumes, thicker paper, a bolder typeface, and dozens of newly included or newly translated works from around the world. The Norton Anthology of World Literature represents continuity as well as change. Like its predecessor, the anthology is a compact library of world literature, offering an astounding forty-three complete longer works, more than fifty prose works, over one hundred lyric poems, and twenty-three plays. More portable, more suitable for period courses, more pleasant to read, and more attuned to current teaching and research trends, The Norton Anthology of World Literature remains the most authoritative, comprehensive, and teachable anthology for the world literature survey.

This is one of my favorite times of year for porch reading. The temperature is comfy and I can see the red & white azaleas, pink dogwood, and purples in bloom. ❤️🌸📚🍺
