4.0 out of 5 stars Great Selections
I would give it a five star rating if I were only rating the content on its own, since it contains more poetry and more short stories than I could ever read through and cherish within a single lifetime. The selections here are wonderful and have helped me discover many authors and works I would have never previously found. It contains more historic knowledge and wisdom...

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Selections, July 3, 2014
This review is from: The Norton Anthology of American Literature (Shorter Eighth Edition) (Vol. Two-Volume Set) (Paperback)
I would give it a five star rating if I were only rating the content on its own, since it contains more poetry and more short stories than I could ever read through and cherish within a single lifetime. The selections here are wonderful and have helped me discover many authors and works I would have never previously found. It contains more historic knowledge and wisdom than any other standard textbook could ever hope to share. The only problems are the problems that accompany basically all anthologies, the paper is cheap, and it would have been nicer if these volumes were a bit smaller so they'd be easier to hold and read. Otherwise, it's excellent for people who love dense literature along with insightful backgrounds on the author's published in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product and it came quickly, February 4, 2014

This review is from: The Norton Anthology of American Literature (Shorter Eighth Edition) (Vol. Two-Volume Set) (Paperback)
The books came very quickly and I liked that they had a plastic seal over them when I got them. They were used, but they looked like they were brand new books. Also it saved me $50 from what I would have had to pay if I got it from my school bookstore.
