When I was studying English for undergrad, I had to purchase an excessive number of copies of literature textbooks and anthologies. This was one of them, and I can actually say that I flipped through the vast majority of this text for my African American Lit class. This was a good one and, I think, still relevant. ( )

As a literature student in college, Norton anthologies were my bread and butter. This book in particular is both a useful learning resource and an enjoyable addition to my personal library. The reading selections are well-chosen, and the included essays are the usual Norton quality. ( )
