The only one-volume drama anthology thatâ€™s a Norton. The most comprehensive collection of its kind, The Norton Anthology of Drama, Shorter Edition, offers plays unavailable in any other drama anthology, with the careful preparation and scrupulous editing you expect from a Nortonâ€“all at a lower price than other one-volume drama anthologies. With a total of thirty-three plays, The Norton Anthology of Drama, Shorter Edition, includes two major plays and one translation exclusive to Norton, detailed introductory material to place the plays in context, and annotations that explain, but never interpret, the text. The student website augments the printed text with critical, theoretical, and historical information. Not just less expensive than other one-volume anthologies, The Norton Anthology of Drama, Shorter Edition, is the best value as wellâ€“a book that students will keep long after the class is over.
