Review: The Norton Anthology of World Literature, Volume E

The Norton Anthology of World Literature, Volume E by Martin Puchner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This entire anthology is a necessity for any literature lover and/or homeschooler’s bookshelf. I am extremely impressed with the range of literature included, in genre, in geographic origin, and in time period. This volume in particular stands out to me as particularly exceptional as it contains several of my favorite works of literature: Fyodor Dostoyevky’s “Notes from Underground,” Leo Tolstoy’s “Death of Ivan Illyich,” and Frederick Douglass’s “Narrative of the Life,” all three of which are works I believe everyone should read. I was also introduced to a whole range of incredible works I was hitherto unfamiliar with in reading this book. I recommend this book to anyone with a passion for knowledge, for literature, and for the full range of human thought and experience.
