Reviews of The Norton Anthology of English Literature: The Middle Ages Through the Restoration and the Eighteenth Century

Overall customer rating: 4.334

by Susan J on Mar 11, 2011

This book arrived quickly. Needed it for my literature class. Good stories. The only negative I would mention is that the individual pages are so paper-thin. The publisher should have used thicker paper.

The Pageturner

Heavy Reading Not for the Lighthearted

by The Pageturner on Nov 3, 2008

We used this book in my British Literature class in high school, and I must say, it is heavy in both weight and content. We called it "The English scholar's Bible". This book contains a wide variety of stories from "Beowulf" and "The Book of Margery Kempe" to "Dr. Faustus" and "Paradise Lost". A gigantic amount of scholarly research went into this book and sometimes one will get lost in the foot notes that can take up to half a page. In the notes, many words are translated and lines explained, which is very helpful. A few pages before each story gives a detailed summary so one will not get lost in words. Also, writings explaining different periods in European history aid in understanding the concepts that authors may have believed. This is a good read and an excellent textbook for an advanced curriculum.
