About the Product

A responsive, refreshed, and media-rich revision of the best-selling anthology in the field

The most trusted anthology for complete works and helpful editorial apparatus. The Tenth Edition supports survey and period courses with NEW complete major works, NEW contemporary writers, and dynamic and easy-to-access digital resources. NEW video modules help introduce students to literature in multiple exciting ways. These innovations make the Norton an even better teaching tool for instructors and, as ever, an unmatched value for students.


  • The apparatus you trust—extensively rethought for today's students For over 50 years, the Norton Anthologies have set the standard for editorial help that is right for undergraduates. In the Tenth Edition, the editors have refreshed the apparatus to reflect both NEW scholarship and changing classroom interests. Introductions and headnotes have been revised; hundreds of annotations and glosses fine-tuned; and bibliographies carefully updated—all with the goal of helping students better understand the text, without telling them what to think.

New to this edition

  • More complete major works. More contemporary writers. The Tenth Edition introduces 6 much-requested contemporary writers, all global in reach—including Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Kazuo Ishiguro, and Hilary Mantel. There are also 5 NEW complete longer works, among them Shakespeare’s Othello and Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels. In response to instructors’ requests, the editorial team has also added dozens of other NEW selections throughout the book.
  • 25 New viideo modules take students behind the scenes Designed to enhance classroom presentation, the 25 NEW video modules were conceived of and are narrated by the anthology editors themselves. The modules, available via the NAEL Archive give students a fascinating window into the literary past and present, whether through a look at rarely seen books and manuscripts; a guided tour of the settings where authors brought literary characters into being; interviews with living authors; or a teacher-to-teacher tutorial on conveying a literary form or tradition.
  • 7 New lecture-length contextual clusters emphasize key themes Designed to be teachable in a class period or two, these thematic groupings of short texts focus on cultural issues and literary forms and movements. The Tenth Edition strengthens this popular feature with 7 NEW clusters, including “Talking Animals” and “Print Culture and the Rise of the Novel.”
  • The NAEL Archive—home to dynamic and easy-to-access free resources Bringing the texts and contexts of English literary history to life in the classroom is the goal of every instructor. To help achieve that goal more easily and efficiently, the Tenth Edition offers the NEWLY reconceived NAEL Archive, a comprehensive suite of rich and imaginative materials, including supplemental readings, videos, images, and more.
