Norton Anthology of World Literature : Beginnings to 1650, Volume A, B and C - 2nd edition

Norton Anthology of World Literature : Beginnings to 1650, Volume A, B and C (ISBN10: 0393977641; ISBN13: 9780393977646)
ISBN13: 978-0393977646
ISBN10: 0393977641

Summary: Package 1 (Volumes A-C) Seven years ago, Norton changed the way world literature is taught by introducing The Norton Anthology of World Masterpieces, Expanded Edition. 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 bolde
r 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.
