Overview

Read by millions of students over seven editions, The Norton Anthology of Western Literature remains the most trusted undergraduate survey of Western literature available and one of the most successful college texts ever published.
Firmly grounded by the hallmark strengths of all Norton anthologies—thorough and helpful introductory matter, judicious annotation, complete texts wherever possible—the Eighth Edition features a significantly expanded selection of literature (37 new authors and over 150 new pieces) as well as three new pedagogical features designed to enrich students’ understanding of the historical and cultural context of the literary works.

    The footnotes included in the pieces are endlessly helpful. I also really like the physical feel of the pages. I bought it for my World Literature class, but am looking forward to keeping it instead of selling it when I'm done with the course.

    I got this for my world literature class and I personally liked it. The only thing is if your looking for the whole stories to some of these books, your better off just buying the book itself, for example, the Iliad. There are only a few books and selective chapters of the epic poem, if your looking for the whole book, just buy the Iliad.
