Summary

As a rhetorically arranged collection of short essays
for composition, our Sampler echoes the cloth samplers once done in
colonial America, presenting the basic patterns of writing for students
to practice just as schoolchildren once practiced their stitches and
ABCs on needlework samplers. This new edition shows students that
description, narration, and the other patterns of exposition are not
just abstract concepts used in composition classrooms but are in fact
the way we think-and write.
The Norton Sampler contains 63 carefully chosen readings-classics as
well as more recent pieces, essays along with a few real-world
texts-all demonstrating how writers use the modes of discourse for many
varied purposes.
