The Norton Anthology of American Literature, 1914-1945, Tenth Edition

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. Volume D, 1914–1945, is thoroughly revised and presents a fuller picture of American Modernism, with a brand-new period introduction, The Great Gatsby (complete), new stories by Hemingway, expanded selections for Richard Wright, and new author Anne Petry. Teaching clusters in every volume enable instructors to focus on a dynamic theme while exploring a group of short, related texts. The Tenth Edition includes new clusters: Popular Genre Fiction (vol. D), Debating Black Art (vol. D) , and The 1930s: The Great Depression and Social Upheaval (vol. D).
