The Norton Sampler is a collection of short essays for composition students. Like the cloth samplers that schoolchildren produced in colonial times to practice their stitches (and, at the same time, their ABCs), The Norton Sampler is based on the assumption that writing is a practical art that can be learned by studying some basic rhetorical patterns -- narration, description, comparison, and the like.
