5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, even for non-English majors. Nov. 26 2012
By Ryan H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This textbook has so much richness and history that I found easy to peruse. I quoted from it often because it has so many classics. If one loves English literature and/or history, this is a must. One does not have to be an English major to read this because the footnotes hold the hand of the reader the whole way.

5.0 out of 5 stars simply amazing Sept. 7 2012
By aviva_dayan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is just amazing. Amazon listed it as used, but there were barely any marks in it. The price was great also. Elsewhere, I had seen this anthology being sold for like $60.00, but Amazon's price was way better! $7.00 or so. The readings inside are engaging to read. I am very satisfied with my purchase, with Amazon, and The Norton Company for putting together these great books.

5.0 out of 5 stars best anthology money can buy! Nov. 29 2009
By R B - Published on Amazon.com
The Entire Norton collection is a must-own for anyone, especially though interested in reading the classics. It includes every piece of "important" literature ever written, with very detailed, well-written commentaries and footnotes to help you understand the historical setting of the piece. I bought them for class last year and have never regretted it. I am thinking of getting the American set next.
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Oct. 24 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was an excellent product. It is in excellent shape. I'm so tired of word counts. I will keep typing and telling you how excellent the condition was. I say was because I've used it and tore those pages up. I actually used it for making a nest. When I hibernate during the winter, I like to read pasty, old white guy poems.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great Buy March 11 2013

This was also another required college literature purchase. It was also in brand new condition and at a very reasonable price. The book arrived before it's estimated arrival date and has been used almost weekly by my son. I would definitely buy from this seller again. Smooth transaction.
