    About Author

    1. M.H. Abrams Stephen Greenblatt Catherine Robson James Simpson Jon Stallworthy Jack Stillinger Carol T. Christ Lawrence Lipking says:

      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.

    3. Another winner from the folks at Norton The Victorians aren t my favorite, but the selections here were good and the Norton intros are, as always, interesting and informative.One thing that s challenging I imagine about putting together a Victorian anthology is that so many of the best Victorian works are long novels, which you really can t include very well in an anthology without making it prohibitively long Of course there are great short stories and novellas here, like Gaskell s The Old Nurs [...]

    7. Another anthology full of classics, taught in Brit Lit at Alma by a teacher who ruined the beauty of these timeless pieces.


    8. The selection I concentrated on from here was John Stuart Mill, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Robert Browning, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Matthew Arnold and Christina Rossetti.





    9. This collection tends to lean towards essay s and poetry than fiction The poetry has a good variety and the fiction that is in the anthology has a good variety as well.
