Summary
This comprehensive volume extensively treats Hawthorne, Melville, Dickinson, Hemingway and other long-cherished writers, while also giving considerable attention to more recent authors such as Kate Chopin and to forms of writing not studied amply in the past. Contributions by foremost scholars and critics reexamine in contemporary terms traditional subjects such as the importance of Puritanism, romanticism, and frontier humor in American life and writing. Some of the newer topics covered are the role of women as writers, readers, and literary subjects and the impact of writers from minority groups. The book sets forth a generation's interpretation of the rise of American civilization and culture. ISBN 0-231-05812-8: $59.95.
