Read by millions of students over seven editions, The Norton Anthology of Western Literature remains the most trusted undergraduate survey of Western literature available and one of the most successful college texts ever published.

Firmly grounded by the hallmark strengths of all Norton anthologies—thorough and helpful introductory matter, judicious annotation, complete texts wherever possible—the Eighth Edition features a significantly expanded selection of literature (37 new authors and over 150 new pieces) as well as three new pedagogical features designed to enrich students' understanding of the historical and cultural context of the literary works.
