W. W. Norton & Co.
A selection of literature containing only works written originally in the ancient and modern foreign languages. The world literature selections presented here really are from all over the world, and not are predominantly "western" writings. There's quite a bit of material that never seen elsewhere (ancient Egyptian love songs, for example) and the translations are fluid and easy to read. Recommended anthology for anyone looking to enrich a personal library with world literary selections. The Norton Anthology of World Literature represents continuity as well as change. Like its predecessor, the anthology is a compact library of world literature, offering an astounding forty-three complete longer works, more than fifty prose works, over one hundred lyric poems, and twenty-three plays. More portable, more suitable for period courses, more pleasant to read, and more attuned to current teaching and research trends, The Norton Anthology of World Literature remains the most authoritative, comprehensive, and teachable anthology for the world literature survey.
