The Norton Anthology of English Literature
M. H. Abrams (Editor), et al
W .W. Norton & Company; February 2001(seventh edition)
ISBN: 0393947742

The Seventh Edition of The Norton Anthology of English Literature continues to be the indispensable anthology. Like its predecessors, the Seventh Edition offers the best in English literature from the classic to the contemporary in a readable, teachable format. More selections by women and twentieth-century writers, a richer offering of contextual writings and apparatus fully revised to reflect today's scholarship make the Seventh Edition the choice for breadth, depth, and quality. Examining 20th-century literature in English, this edition reflects the global reach of literature in English with ten new authors - Jean Rhys, Chinua Achebe, Alice Munro, V. S. Naipaul, Anita Desai, Les Murray, Salman Rushdie, J. M. Coetzee, Eavan Boland, and Paul Muldoon.

ISBN: 0393979695

Published in two volumes, the newest edition of The Norton Anthology of American Literature presents the work of 212 writers--38 newly included.

Volume 1 covers the period of 1620 to1865.

The Norton Introduction to Poetry
J. Paul Hunter (Editor), et al
W. W. Norton & Company; May 2002 (eighth edition)
ISBN: 0393978206

The Eighth Edition of The Norton Introduction to Poetry, like its predecessors, offers a broad and balanced selection of poems--483 poems total, 101 new to this edition. Drawing deeply from the traditional canon, The Norton Introduction to Poetry also features the best work of emerging and well-known contemporary poets. Professor Hunter's teacherly but unobtrusive commentary provides just the sort of help new readers of poetry need to appreciate the form and the context of a poem. Newly included works in this edition by poets such as Denise Levertov, W.H. Auden, Yvonne Sapia, Simon Ortiz, Cathy Song, Allen Ginsberg, Miller Williams, Elizabeth Bishop, Dwight Okita and Seamus Heaney enrich an already incomparable collection.
