Great guide to early English literature,
This review is from: The Norton Anthology of English Literature: Middle Ages Through the Restoration and the Eighteenth Century v. 1 (Paperback)
I had to buy this book for my studies and thought it would be quite tedious. However, when I started reading, I was surprised at the beauty of the language, the large extracts and the general care with which everything has been done. The texts are clearly written by people who not only have a love for the English language, but also know how to communicate that enthusiasm.
