Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This beautifully produced new series of literary reference works, "The Gale Study Guides to Great Literature," is designed to support the literary research of high school and college students. The series in turn consists of three subseries: Literary Masters, Literary Masterpieces, and Literary Topics. These focus on the individual authors, works, and concepts frequently studied in the current literature curricula. Written by well-known scholars, the books all feature original, newly written material, which presents not only the facts about the author, work, or literary topic but also significant cultural and historical material to help put those facts in context. All volumes contain glossaries, lists of study questions, chronologies, annotated bibliographies, indexes, and other study resources. Unlike other ongoing series that cover similar terrain (e.g., Twayne's "Authors," "Masterwork," and "Studies in Literary Themes and Genres" series and Chelsea House's "Modern Critical Interpretations" and "Modern Critical Views"), these books have a more finished and personal feel. The thoughtful and attractive design and convenient layout, comprehensive approach, reliance on original material, constant reference to current research, and ample bibliographic apparatus make this a superior series. Richly illustrated, well printed with broad margins and readable type, handsomely and sturdily bound, these books are highly recommended for public and college libraries and secondary school media centers.--Paul D'Alessandro, Portland P.L., Maine Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
The three components to Gale's Study Guides to Great Literature include and . These guides are appropriate for high school readers and, perhaps, somewhat older students who need somewhere to start. The volumes follow a set format: a chronology of events in the subject's life is followed by discussion of early life and literary efforts, the various eras of the subject's life and the social and cultural context, the works themselves and their significance, the subject's writings on writing, how the subject's work is viewed and studied, and resources for study (study questions, glossary, bibliography). Each volume contains the same brief introduction by Alvin Kernan (humanities, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation); the credentials of the author are not cited. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
