This Shorter Edition of The Norton Anthology Of American Literature has been prepared for the convenience of teachers who wish to have all the materials for a course within the covers of a single volume. The book, distilled from the rich resources of the parent volume, is designed to serve either a short course in American literature or else a longer course in which a "core" anthology is to be supplemented by a number of individual texts. Teachers of both type of course will find in this Shorter Edition the essential authors and selections, from the earliest years to the present, that they wish to teach, together with a useful reorganization of the materials and succinct and up-to-date editorial aids necessary for an adequate understanding of the text.
