Overview

The 1896 Houghton publication of The Country of the Pointed Firs by southern writer Jewett is the only edition of the work have presented the work in its unified novelistic form, according to editor Morgan (English, Lynn U.). Other editions have made the mistake of trying to incorporate related stories into the work or including critical commentaries attempting to place the stories into the context of the rest of the novel, thereby misunderstanding Jewett's intent and novelistic achievement. He restores the 1896 version and includes a critical commentary based on the restored version. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
