Meyer Howard Abrams is an American literary critic, known for works on Romanticism, in particular his book The Mirror and the Lamp In a powerful contrast, Abrams shows that until the Romantics, literature was usually understood as a mirror, reflecting the real world, in some kind of mimesis but for the Romantics, writing was like a lamp the light of the writer s inner soul spilled out to illuminate the world Under Abrams editorship, the Norton Anthology of English Literature became the standard text for undergraduate survey courses across the U.S and a major trendsetter in literary canon formation.Abrams was born in a Jewish family in Long Branch, New Jersey The son of a house painter and the first in his family to go to college, he entered Harvard University as an undergraduate in 1930 He went into English because, he says, there weren t jobs in any other profession, so I thought I might as well enjoy starving, instead of starving while doing something I didn t enjoy After earning his baccalaureate in 1934, Abrams won a Henry fellowship to the University of Cambridge, where his tutor was I.A Richards He returned to Harvard for graduate school in 1935 and received his Masters degree in 1937 and his PhD in 1940 During World War II, he served at the Psycho Acoustics Laboratory at Harvard He describes his work as solving the problem of voice communications in a noisy military environment by establishing military codes that are highly audible and inventing selection tests for personnel who had a superior ability to recognize sound in a noisy background In 1945 Abrams became a professor at Cornell University As of March 4th, 2008, he was Class of 1916 Professor of English Emeritus there.



Comments The Norton Anthology Of English Literature, Vol. B: The Romantic Period Through The Twentieth Century And After

  • Jessica

    I am required by my department to teach from these anthologies, and I detest it. These anthologies would be fine for high school, but I resent not being trusted to select my own texts at the college level. More to the point of reviewing them: beware, young readers, beware! World Literature does not come from an anthology. Are we really to believe that on p.900 we can "read" a Native American chant? What are the problems inherent in selection? Let's include a few women, but not too many! A few no [...]

    This was my father's book when he read literature at university. It was a great introduction to English Lit. Especially since I lived in a rural farming community and TV and radio reception was spotty. Mum and Dad would tell us stories from the book and read aloud many of the poems.It was a very important book to me. I used it when when I was at secondary school and university.

    The Norton Anthology of English Literature, Vol. 2 / 0-393-95043-3If you are looking at purchasing this book, you've either been required to purchase it for a college course, or you are considering investing in an English literature anthology for your own library and you want to know if this anthology is worth your money. If you are required to buy this book for a course, my review won't matter to you much one way or another, so this is slated towards the latter group.This is an excellent resour [...]


  • Sammy

    Why Norton? I'm glad you asked, friend! There are many schools of thought on anthologies, some negative, some positive, all fascinating. Of course, if you're buying this because it's a university textbook then really you have no choice; for the rest of us, there's more than meets the eye.The negative responses tend to come in a few forms:1: Anthologies reward superficiality. Much like surtitles at the opera, which help convey the surface meaning but encourage people not to "read" the music and t [...]


  • Gary Mesick

    Criticize the Norton if you dare. For value in teaching (and studying) a survey course, there just isn't anything better. And I think their passages from longer works are generally right on the money. The only problem is that, without the context of the larger work, the passages sometimes don't make sense. Still, this is it. The required reading, in condensed form. Good luck.


  • Christina

    I rely heavily on all my Norton Anthology volumes. They have chicken scratches throughout the pages, are falling apart but I cherish them.


  • Elisa

    As I said for volume A, volume B is one of my textbooks for school and so I only did the assigned readings for the class. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the pieces I read and I have plans to read this volume from start to finish at some point, however, I will say that a lot of fantastic English authors are not represented for the 20th and 21st centuries which makes me a bit sad. Other than that, I think it’s a fairly good survey of writers as far as the lauded Canon goes. I’m only going to do s [...]

    My Holy Book


  • Danica Page (One Page at a Time)

    I actually really liked almost of all the works in this anthology. I love the Norton Anthologies.


  • Zafer Sattouf

    Illuminating Passiveness: the Ultimate Wisdom in Nature William Wordsworth is universally known as a great poet whose poems played a tremendous role and was one of most influential and leading figures in the emergence of Romanticism. He published his collection of poems, known as the Lyrical Ballads, in 1798, which was around the beginnings of the Romantic era of the British literature. One of his poems in the Lyrical Ballads is called Expostulation and Reply, in which Wordsworth emphasizes on [...]


  • Emily

    This second volume includes three volumes of the Norton Anthology, volumes D, E, and F. These volumes cover the Romantic period, Victorian age, and Twentieth Century and after. Some of my favorite authors from this volume are William Blake, Lord Byron, John Keats, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Emily Bronte, Lord Tennyson, Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Rupert Brooke, Wilfred Owen, William Butler Yeats, Stevie Smith, Carol Ann Duffy, Margaret Atwood, and Hanif Kureishi.


  • Hyeheon

    The Norton Anthology covers the Romantic Period, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, William Wordsworth, Percy Bysshe Shelley--all of which I like. The authors' biographies aren't too posh-sounding and are rather informative than scholarly, which I like. The estimated weight of this book, however, must be over two kilograms, which I do not like (hence the four stars). I will be happily re-selling this copy after finishing my introductory literature course.


  • Sana

    A good collection piece to read occasionally without Order. Pretty hefty!


  • Jordan

    This was one of my textbooks (for my "Victorian Literature" calss in New Zealand), but I think anyone who is interested in great literature would find the investment wise. It covers the time periods from The Romantic Period (1785-1830) to the The Victorian Age (1830-1901) and ending with The Twentieth Century. Obviously, in my class we only covered a touch of the Romantic stuff and the Victorian selections. We didn't touch the 20th Century at all. Like I do with all my Norton textbooks, I'm goin [...]


  • Helen Murray

    I've marked this book as read (on the basis that I've spent hours and hours of study time going through the notes, essays and references, and have probably dipped into every text in the book at least superficially). However, I don't actually think this is the kind of book you ever really finish. First of all, it is a textbook. A literal book of texts. An attempt to encompass a literary canon, or rather three literary canons, the Romantic, Victorian and Modern eras. It is, therefore of a monstrou [...]


  • Rhesa

    While Volume 1 of this awesome Norton Anthology of English Literature primarily covers the Middle Ages, The 16th century, the early 17th century & The 18th century, this 2nd volume deals with Romantic Period [Blake, Wollstonecraft, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats etc), The Victorian Age (Carlyle, Cardinal Newman, Bronte, Huxley etc) and the 20th century (Hardy, Shaw, Yeats, Joyce, T.S Eliot, Orwell, Beckett, Morrison etc).I bought this book back in 2002 in Borders Bookstore for only S$12! Isn [...]


  • Janie Harrison

    REREADING NOW!I finally finished this big textbook. I did skip a few at the end, like James Joyce and a couple of others. It took me two months plus a week to read through most of the selections. I'd say I read 85% of them this time around, more than I would have read in a classroom.I am a big fan of Victorian novels and I wanted to read some essays, poetry, and see how 19th century British literature evolved. There is an interesting and old group on the Internet, a group of writers who call the [...]


  • rebecca

    poems, essays, plays, etc.s from the romantic period, the victorian age, and the twentieth centuryr example (i.e. my bookmarks are at places like)"water, water, everywhere,and all the boards did shrink [can you guess where this is going?];water, water, everywhere,nor any drop to drink."mariana (the tennyson poem)love among the ruins (the robert browning poem)lines written in kensington gardens (the matthew arnold poem) (and if you don't know matthew arnold yet, then you should check this one out [...]


  • sologdin

    anthologies suck in general, because their animating concept is just a bad idea--they are in fact the special bearer of the Form of the Bad Idea. (is that even possible? is there a form of an idea, i.e of a form itself, a metaform? because that'd be fuckin' crazy, yo. or is it just a form of an idea that's merely inside someone's head, and istherefore a copy of a form that inside the form of someone's head, or what?)Norton anthologies are double-suck because the editorial policy is horrible as t [...]


  • Julie

    Obviously i have not read every page. But i refer to it on occasion to read and re-read some of my favourite poetry. A very comprehensive set, which took me AGES to save up for, and my course was only 6 months from finishing by the time i got my own copies. Ah well. Money well spent. I keep returning to those wonderful Romantics, particularly Keats and Shelley (or is that Sheets and Kelley??), and Blake. I also love Tennyson, and the Pre-Raphaelites--though I don't think there is enough Pre-Raph [...]


  • Shirin

    Norton is a great anthology book; it contains introductions of different literary ages and in every age most important & influential British literary men & women ( mostly poets) have been introduced. Furthermore, their works not all of them but the most famous works have been attached there of course with their useful footnotes. By the end of the book, readers will confront with small chapter named Poems in Process. The chapter illuminates how poets edit& reproduce their poetries wit [...]


  • Robin

    I like this series of textbooks. Each section has a clear, concise introduction to different aspects of that theme. It provides brief, informative biographies on each author. It includes a wide variety of authors and poets to choose from. There is no way you could cover everything in this book in one semester. It has wonderful footnotes to help clarify archaic words and phrases as well. All this is presented without any kind of opinion or critique, leaving the passages open for debate or persona [...]


  • Dave

    This was my college textbook in the 60's. I despised having to carry it around, but I found an awful lot of good literature in it. I most clearly remember the Victorian poets. Tennyson's Mariana, a favorite among my female classmates frequently comes to mind. Considering that the contents, aside from critical commentary are long past copyright protection, just about all the volume's numerous contents must be widely available gratis through the technological ether.


  • Hannah

    I enjoyed most of the author introductions, though some of the information felt irrelevant. I got a kick out of some of the footnotes. Some were completely redundant, and made me feel like this book caters towards middle or high schoolers. Other than that, this is a relatively comprehensive book about British literature from the Romantic Period to the 20th century (includes many works from important authors).


  • Mandy

    This was much easier to read than volume one. We were finally able to read something other than ballads, epics, and, poetry this semester. I know it is strange to some, but I just loved reading the works of Wollstonecraft, Coleridge,Shelley, Austen, Browning, and one of my new favorites Tennyson. There is something empowering in taking a work that at first seems impossible to comprehend and then breaking it down and unveiling the absolute beauty of words.


  • Saad Yousaf

    I give it a 3/5 because, though I read it regularly, I find its claims of coming close to the title of "World Literature" to be ill-deserved. There are only a handful of non-Western writers that are not well-represented at all, each one being given only a few pages at most. However, were this only for Western Literature, it would be quite well-balanced book (not allowing for certain ambiguous and vague footnotes).


  • Kristin

    Great collection of texts, though I have to admit that what really tickled my fancy was the footnote by the Norton group within one of Oscar Wilde's plays: "Although Australia had originally been a place to which criminals were banished, it was, by this time [1890s], like Canada, a place to which families might send harmless but useless members, who would be paid an allowance to remain abroad."


  • Jen (Feffer)

    The only university book I ever kept. It covers the Romantic Period (1785-1830; Burns, Mary Wollstonecraft, and Coleridge), which I so loved, through the Victorian (1830-1901; John Stuart Mill, Robert Browning, Wilde), and on on through the Twentieth Century (Housman, Auden, andt much else. :). Good stuff. I love the Brits.


  • Katie

    this is actually my textbook for a british lit class, but i have fallen in love with it. the selections are wonderful, and the introductions and footnotes are all clear and useful. i suppose i have a love-hate relationship with most of the romantics, but i found myself leaning towards loving them somehow--though perhaps that had more to do with the class itself.


  • Danielle

    Of course I didnt read the whole book, but I think it's a good collection. It has a large variety of authors in it (and for the size of it, it should. the biggest down side to this book is the size! the paper is very thin, but there are a few thousand pages. This combination made the book not as sturdy as i would like.)
