W. W. Norton & Company is proud to present the Sixth Edition of TheNorton Sampler. As a rhetorically arranged collection of short essaysfor composition, our Sampler echoes the cloth samplers once done incolonial America, presenting the basic patterns of writing for studentsto practice just as schoolchildren once practiced their stitches andABCs on needlework samplers. This new edition shows students thatdescription, narration, and the other patterns of exposition are notjust abstract concepts used in composition classrooms but are in factthe way we think--and write. The Norton Sampler contains 63 carefully chosen readings--classics aswell as more recent pieces, essays along with a few real-worldtexts--all demonstrating how writers use the modes of discourse for manyvaried purposes.
