"My grandaughter requested this set for her collection of study books @: Oxford.She told me it had to be 7th. edition and Amazon had both and @ the right price!"
"I had to buy the second package for a class, and it was so good that I wanted to get this as well. Pick it up. There's not another single place (although it is 5 volumes in total) that covers more American authors, at least not one I've seen. Most are quick and short, but it's a nice introduction to those authors. There are many complete works. Enough to whet you appetite for more great reading, in my eyes. I think these are the best compilation volumes out there. And there are many authors covering a broad range of material. It's a good buy. "

"the reviewer from los angeles is evaluating what he calls a university trend, not these marvelous and comprehensive anthologies. moreover, of the three authors to whom he accords canonical status, cooper (whom twain absolutely reviled) and poe both remain controversial. a teacher of literature myself, i find cooper remarkably unimaginative and intolerably inefficient. His Rivenoak speaks that condescending white-guy version of "plain-ole-injun-talk", praising Natty Bumpo's decency 8 or 10 times in a single numb paragraph. we read cooper because of his influence, not his raw merits. further, cooper, like the astounding melville, was a 1930's revisionist canon re-admission; in fact, joseph conrad was asked to write an introduction to a melville volume and refused, writing back that he saw nothing of value in his writing. meanwhile, countless novels that (in their day) sold many, many times more than any of these folks are simply not read any more. so we've completely revised the canon that way too, judging as disposable most of the literature that real american readers of former times couldn't get enough of. who were the successful authors? hawthorne called them "that damn tribe of scribbling women," which accounts--in the words of a canon fixture himself (and one i utterly venerate)--for what we now ignorantly call "gender studies," and the concommitant revision of antholgies. as for native amnerican authors, we can at least say that cooper would be nowhere without them, and having read them on their own merits we can say much more, and with deep appreciation.

at any rate, norton is expanding their antholgies in size as they add these "other" writers, so that their additions do not come at the expense of the conservative canon. norton offers us the familiar and the recovered side-by side, so we needn't get anxious. their anthology is a thoroughgoing record and celebration of the complete american literary tradition, as it was advanced and read by living americans. "

W.W. Norton & Company broke the mold with this collection of American literary works, as they do with most all of their collections (I'm also quite taken with their Western World Literature collection). Among the complete works are such timeless tales as Walden, Benito Cereno, The Scarlet Letter, and Douglass' Narrative of the Life, each a significant piece not just among American literature, but among American history.

"What I find particularly enjoyable is the fact that it holds so many different pieces that if there is a time in which I have nothing better to do, Norton's American Literature Anthology most likely will have something to suit my mood. Among the many poems, essays, and narratives, there is surely something new to find whether being a piece of literary work or a symbolic significance to search for within a piece I may have already looked through. It is something I plan to keep on my bookshelf to enjoy for a very long time."
