Beginning with Seamus Heaney's brilliant new translation of Beowulf, and continuing through ten centuries of remarkable literature to the contemporary works of Derek Walcott, J. M. Coetzee, Nadine Gordimer, and Salman Rushdie, the new Major Authors edition is a library between two covers -- an indispensable addition to the family bookshelf.Beginning with Seamus Heaney's brilliant new translation of Beowulf, and continuing through ten centuries of remarkable literature to the contemporary works of Derek Walcott, J.

Good. Connecting readers with great books since 1972. Used books may not include companion materials, some shelf wear, may contain highlighting/notes, and may not include cd-rom or access codes. Customer service is our top priority!
Fair. 7th edition. Book is in overall good condition! ! Does not have dust jacket. Some water damage causing pages to stain and lightly ripple. Does not affect the text. Cover shows some edge wear and corners are lightly worn. Pages have a minimal to moderate amount of markings. FAST SHIPPING W/USPS TRACKING! ! !
There are plenty of options here which will be quite useful in teaching the scope of British Literature in one semester. I also like the discussion on the history of the English language, as well as the introductory essays for each of the periods and authors.

Interesting Companion to Anthology
The extra material on the companion disc to Norton's Anthology of English Literature is full of interesting music, fun facts, and loads of other fascinating material. It makes for a good audio/visual component to bring into the classroom, as well.

Don't go to College without it!
An old favorite & a new friend -- the Norton Anthology is required for many College level courses for a good reason. Every major writer is represented, as well as literary periods & historical context. Technical terms are defined & ample footnotes for individual works are provided. And wait ! don't throw it away when you graduate. Hang on to it for casual browsing & reference.
