"A gathering of major importance. . . . Fisher brilliantly articulates the distinctive work of 'new historicism' in treating American texts and circumstances. His introduction, together with the consistently high quality of the essays and their remarkable range of approaches, makes this dramatically superior to earlier collections. . . . As a help to working scholars trying to sort out new developments, and as an introduction for graduate students, this will be the best available guide."—T. Walter Herbert, author of Marquesan Encounters: Melville and the Meaning of CivilizationAbout the Author:
Philip Fisher is Professor of English at Harvard University. He is the author of, among other works, Making and Effacing Art (Oxford 1989).
