Twaynes United States Authors SeriesSeries Editors: Frank Day, Clemson University Joseph M. Flora, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Pattie Cowell, Colorado State University Ruth K. MacDonald A volume in Twaynes Authors Series of literary criticism offers a critical introduction to the life and work of a particular writer, to the history and influence of a literary movement, or to the development of a literary genre. Primarily devoted to critical interpretation and discussion of an authors work, the study not only takes account of major literary trends and important contributions in scholarship and criticism but also provides new critical insights and an original point of view. Authors Series volumes are rooted in the original works themselves and address readers ranging from advanced high school students to university professors. The book suggests to the informed reader new ways of considering a writers work. A reader new to the work under examination will, after reading the Authors Series study, be compelled to turn to the originals, bringing to the reading a basic knowledge and fresh critical perspectives.Popular in American literature classes discussing ethnic diversity and the richness of our national heritage, Leslie Marmon Silko's writing is also admired for its vividness and distinctive Native American point of view. This compact study of the author's life and writing clearly illustrates for the reader how Silko's own Laguna background and Native American stories and traditions influence her work.
