Overview

Long the standard teaching anthology, the landmark Norton Anthology of Literature by Women has introduced generations of readers to the rich variety of women’s writing in English.
Now, the much-anticipated Third Edition responds to the wealth of writing by women across the globe with the inclusion of 61 new authors (219 in all) whose diverse works span six centuries. A more flexible two-volume format and a versatile new companion reader make the Third Edition an even better teaching tool.
"As diversity itself has shaped the evolution of feminist criticism, from its early preoccupation with women's shared experiences to its more recent absorption in the complex issues and assumptions informing English-language texts by women writers of diverse geographical, cultural, racial, sexual, religious, and class origins and influences, so diversity has shaped the revisions of this anthology." —From the Preface

I used this book for my first literature class in college and loved it. It is very well put together, bringing histories greatest female writers together, weaving some of the most unforgettable stories into one great book. Authors as diverse as Mary Wollstonecraft, Ursula Le Guin, Jane Adams, and African slave writers are together packing a punch never seen before. Stories like Frankenstein and Jane Eyre captivate the reader and give old stories the praise they deserve from new readers. I give great praise to this book and the various writers within it, i highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to go back to the stories of our past.
