The Norton Anthology of Literature by Women: The Traditions in English, Volume 1 by Sandra M. GilbertLong the standard teaching anthology, the landmark Norton Anthology of Literature by Women has introduced generations of readers to the rich variety of womens writing in English. Now, the much-anticipated Third Edition responds to the wealth of writing by women across the globe with the inclusion of 61 new authors (219 in all) whose diverse works span six centuries. A more flexible two-volume format and a versatile new companion reader make the Third Edition an even better teaching tool.
