9780393977646: The Norton Anthology of World Literature: Beginning to 1650

In 1995, Norton changed the way world literature is taught by introducing The Norton Anthology of World Masterpieces, Expanded Edition. Leading the field once again, Norton is proud to publish the anthology for the new century, The Norton Anthology of World Literature, Second Edition. Now published in 2 slipcased sets (this set, Package 1, contains three volumes covering from the beginnings of world lit to 1650), the new anthology boasts slimmer volumes, thicker paper, a bolder typeface, and dozens of newly included or newly translated works from around the world.

The Norton Anthology of World Literature represents continuity as well as change. Like its predecessor, the anthology is a compact library of world literature, offering an astounding forty-three complete longer works, more than fifty prose works, over one hundred lyric poems, and twenty-three plays. More portable, more suitable for period courses, more pleasant to read, and more attuned to current teaching and research trends, The Norton Anthology of World Literature remains the most authoritative, comprehensive, and teachable anthology for the world literature survey.

Included in this set are:

The Norton Anthology of World Literature, Volume A: Beginnings to A.D. 100 (ISBN 0393977552)

The Norton Anthology of World Literature, Volume B: 100 to 1500 (ISBN 0393977560)

The Norton Anthology of World Literature, Volume C: 1500 to 1650 (ISBN 0393977579)
