Chosen based on extensive research, The American Tradition in Literature blends classic and newly discovered voices, while maintaining a keen eye for the contemporary moment. This anthology continues to offer the richest representation of Emerson, Whitman, and Dickinson, and a popular and unique closing section on globalization helps place American literature into a broader, international context―a contextualization that is more important now than ever.
Long respected for its scholarship and accessibility, The American Tradition in Literature continues to provide the background so central to student understanding. Biographical headnotes on new authors have been carefully crafted to provide an overview without attempting to forward any one reading or perspective. The historical introductions, headnotes, and footnotes have been scrupulously checked and updated.
