The classic among essay readers.The Norton Reader has introduced millions of writing students to the essay as a genre. First published in 1965, it is still the best-selling thematic reader―and the only thematic reader that also supports a genre-based approach. The Thirteenth Edition introduces a new generation of editors, almost 50 new essays, and a unique new website that allows readers to sort and search for readings by theme, genre, mode, keyword, and more.

It's a book that prompts both instructors and students to think about many of the most important questions being discussed across the academy today. And it gives our very diverse faculty plenty of choice at a reasonable price.”
