The Norton Anthology of American Literature, 9th Shorter Edition (Volumes 1 & 2)

ISBN: 9780393264517

A responsive, refreshed, and media-rich revision of the market-leading anthology.

The most trusted anthology for complete works, balanced selections, and helpful editorial apparatus, The Norton Anthology of American Literature, Shorter Ninth Edition, features a cover-to-cover revision. General Editor Robert Levine and the four period editors—three of whom are new to the team—have re-energised the anthology. Fresh scholarship, NEW authors and topical clusters, and an enriched instructor site make the Norton Anthology an even better teaching tool for instructors and an unmatched value for students.


  • 16 Complete longer works: Concerned about the cost of assigning individual longer works? The Norton includes 16 complete longer texts, 2 entirely NEW— Charles Brockden Brown’s Memoirs of Carwin the Biloquist and James Baldwin’s Sonny’s Blues—and 2 exclusive to the Norton (Eugene O’Neill’s Long Day’s Journey into Night and Tennessee Williams’s A Streetcar Named Desire).
  • 9 lecture-length contextual clusters: 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 Shorter Ninth Edition strengthens this popular feature with 3 (NEW) contextual clusters and revisions to several others.

  • New selections across the periods, highlighted by 4 new contemporary writers: The Shorter Ninth Edition introduces 6 (NEW) authors, among them 3 contemporary writers—George Saunders, Don DeLillo, and Natasha Trethewey—as well as classic writers Emma Lazarus, Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins, and Patricia Highsmith. At the same time, selections for a host of frequently assigned authors have also been revised and refreshed.

"The overall process was easy and simple to use and purchasing
the book was effortless."

"It was the obvious option for someone on a tight budget
and didn't want a second-hand book that might already be
damaged or have someone else's notes in it…"
