Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An outstanding collection of original critical essays by distinguished specialists, this book is both a chronological survey of nearly 200 years of American literature and an exciting reappraisal of the major figures of that period . . . Indispensable for undergraduate and graduate collections, the book makes solid, documented claims for our early writers while resisting the temptation to overpraise and to distort . . . Each essay contains a bibliography; and thank Providence, the editor saw fit to provide an index. Highly recommended."—Choice
