A diverse collection with innovative resources to tackle today’s teaching challenges.

The Tenth Edition introduces diverse, compelling, relevant texts—from Civil War songs and stories to The Turn of the Screw to The Great Gatsby to poems by Juan Felipe Herrera and Claudia Rankine to a science fiction cluster featuring Octavia Butler and N. K. Jemisin. And continuing its course of innovative and market-responsive changes, the anthology now offers resources to help instructors meet today’s teaching challenges. Chief among these resources is InQuizitive, Norton’s award-winning learning tool, which includes interactive questions on the period introductions and often-taught works in the anthology. In addition, the Tenth Edition maintains the anthology’s exceptional editorial apparatus and generous and diverse slate of texts overall. Available in print and as an annotatable ebook, the Shorter Tenth Edition is ideal for online, hybrid or in-person teaching.
