read some of this in edition extant in 1979. Not read in toto. ( )

I particularly liked this book. I’m still working my way through it since there wasn’t time to read every story in a 16-week semester. The stories I did read however convinced me that I needed to see what else had been put in the anthology. Some I had some trouble getting through, some I breezed through. But each and every story has important components, something to get the reader thinking. I will be working my way through this tome for a number of years but it is a great collection of those influential stories told throughout the ages and everyone should read a few of once in their life.

I confess I've not read all of the contents, but what was present was well-selected and, where applicable, well-translated. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0393925722, Paperback)

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.
