Perhaps. What I know right now is that I'm enjoying this book -- the physical book. Mostly, I've been reading the exam books in Norton critical editions -- that's what I was looking for when I ordered them online, generally used, from all sorts of little bookshops through the Amazon marketplace. The Norton is most useful to me, since I can skim some relevant criticism immediately after reading the book. But sometimes the Norton wasn't easily available and I ordered a different edition; the Fitzgerald arrived as a small hardcover from 1942, beautiful condition, covered in textured creamy-brown fabric, with accents of red and gold. The text is large, easy to read. It's comforting somehow, holding it in my hand and reading about Fitzgerald's financially easy life, his unfortunate marriage, his process of reworking the Rubaiyat. It pleases me.
