The Norton Reader: An Anthology of Nonfiction, Twelfth Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a wide variety of genres, authors, subjects, and styles, The Norton Reader offers the largest and most thoughtfully chosen collection of essays available in one volume. New essays maintain the Reader's long-standing balance of classic and contemporary, canonical and lesser-known selections. The Twelfth Edition also includes important new coverage of visual and spoken texts—photographs, paintings, drawings, and other images that were originally published with the essays.

Synopsis:

With readings in a wide variety of genres, subjects, and styles, it offers the largest and most thoughtfully chosen collection of essays for composition students today. The Twelfth Edition has been carefully revised, with 25 percent of its readings new and an extensive new introduction to reading and writing with guidelines to all the elements cited in the WPA Outcomes Statement. Available in two editions: a full edition, with 206 readings; and a shorter edition, with 123.

Synopsis:

Read by millions of students since it was first published in 1965, The Norton Reader is the bestselling collection of its kind.
