9780393912197: The Norton Reader: An Anthology of Nonfiction (Shorter Thirteenth Edition)

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.

About the Author:

Linda Peterson (Ph.D., Brown University) was Professor of English at Yale University and was published widely on nonfiction prose, notably life-writing and women's authorship. She co-directed the Bass Writing Program at Yale for twenty-five years and served as president of the Council of Writing Program Administrators.

Review:

Still sets the standard.--Allston James, Monterey Peninsula College

We chose The Norton Reader for the breadth and excellence of its readings and for the way those readings foster critical thinking and thoughtful writing. 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. --Alan Ainsworth, Houston Community College"

Still sets the standard. --Allston James, Monterey Peninsula College"

The depth, selection, and range of choices in The Norton Reader are exhilarating. I often feel like I am in a candy store and have to make very difficult choices from all the goodies. --Linda Goldberg, Stevens Institute of Technology"
