During the summer of 2001, I took American Literature since 1865 (known as at out school American Literature II). The professor that was teaching this course uses the Norton Anthology series. I must say these textbooks for literature in their purest form *rock*. I have never seen a literature book so unique and wonderful as Norton Company's. This anthology have some of the complete works of: Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn, Kate Chopin's The Awakening, etc. It has F. Scott Fitzgerald short story I enjoyed in class very much, 'Babylon Revisted', Richard Wright's 'The Boy That Almost Became A Man'. It has a survery of poetry from William Carols Willams, Ezra Pound, and it concludes the famous poem that is written by T.S. Eliot, 'The Wasteland'. Norton anthologies give students a survery of what literature is like. I have both of the American Literature sets (Volumes 1 & 2), have both of the Brish Literature sets (Volume 1 & 2), and I have the second volume of the Masterpieces literature sets. I really adore Norton, and the next college that I am about to transfer to I am sure will have a variety of Norton literature text books.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
