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 2, contains three volumes covering from the 1650 to today), 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 D: 1650 to 1800 (ISBN 0393977587)
The Norton Anthology of World Literature, Volume E: 1800 to 1900 (ISBN 0393977609)
The Norton Anthology of World Literature, Volume F: The Twentieth Century (ISBN 0393977595)
