Norton Anthologies

Working on the Norton Anthology of World Literature has provided me with a challenge and an opportunity. What is at stake when we put together an anthology? What belongs in the ‘canon’? What is being left out? And how can creative juxtapositions within the volume open up a new understanding of literary history?
