I have to say, this book has really proven itself. It is completely cohesive and organized in such an appropriate manner. Physically, the book is heavy load, to say the least, but that is only a reflection of the amount of reading material there is to study. It's a great companion in my Englsih Lit. class, and I would recommend it to any student you is studying up on Medieval Lit.

Little has changed in this anthology except things have moved around in it making it difficult to follow the pages of a professor using the 8th edition. Otherwise, it's a fantastic review of British literature spanning over a century.

Many of the stories, in this anthology, can be read online (they are in the public domain. This was handy, because this book is fragile, heavy, and bulky. It would be better for the publisher to authorize an e-book version, so students don't break their back, adding it to their backpacks; to cart back and forth to school.On the positive note, the stories chosen for this book, were diverse and interesting.

I needed this book for class. It served my purpose and is a great book. The only thing I did not like is that the book is paperback, which causes some pages to loosen after use.

Large book, well written. Reasonable textbook price for the size. However, not too thrilled with the quality of the pages. I understand that they need to be that thin on a 3,000+ paged book in order to even be usable, but the pages are super thin/delicate.

Like most other reviewers here, I had to buy this book for my English Lit. class. I found the book itself to be an excellent collection of British literature and a gem for anyone interested in the subject. The price (when I bought it at least) is far better then you can find anywhere else and it arrived within the promised time frame and in the condition that was represented to me. However, this book is extremely thick and heavy, with over three thousand pages stuffed between its covers, so be prepared to drag its weight around if you have to carry it to class daily.

The condition of this book wasn't too bad, although there was some slight water damage done to it that wasn't disclosed in the information. However, this will be great for my Traditions of British Literature class I'm taking this fall, as well as a great addition to my collection of Norton Anthologies to use as a future high school English teacher. Very quick delivery.

As you would expect from Norton a thorough and well edited introduction covering the early Middle Ages, about 600 BCE, through the 18th century - Beowulf through Boswell.

I bought this book for an Engligh Literature class, it is very bulky, but contains so much there is no other way they could cram so much into anything any smaller! This book remains on my desk, and always will.
