    Where the the hell is Frank Kermode when you need him!

    So, where is the eBook edition? I am not going to plug the B&N eBook textbook programme if you don't have the textbook I have been employing for over two years. Duh!

    Wonderful Resource

    The Norton Introduction to Literature enables the novice reader to understand, critique, and most importantly enjoy great literature. The example stories are superb choices that excite the reader to learn. My only complaints are the pages' wafer thin constitution and the small print. The content, though, is beyond reproach.

    Very Useful Book

    I am taking English 1302 as a Dual Credit course through high school. I happened to find this text very useful. At first, it's size intimidated me. I have grown used to the way the book is structured. There are also times that I don't feel like reading, so I let the audio C.D. that comes with it do the reading. This book is really great and has lots of interesting stories. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in literature.
