About this title

Synopsis:

The classic survey of American literature from its origins to the present, The Norton Anthology of American Literature offers the work of 212 writers--38 newly included. From trickster tales of the Native American tradition to bestsellers of early women writers to postmodernism, the new edition conveys the diversity of American literature. Thirty works are included in their entirety in the two volumes, among them The Awakening, A Streetcar Named Desire, and, new to this edition, Allen Ginsberg's "Howl," and David Mamet's Glengarry, Glen Ross.
