About the Author:

Paul Lauter is the Smith Professor of Literature at Trinity College. He has served as president of the American Studies Association and is a major figure in the revision of the American literary canon.

Review:

"Of any American literature anthology, [this one features] the most generous variety of authors and texts with richly contextualized headnotes and footnotes."

"It's very thorough and complete, offering a huge array of options. The headnotes are useful and provide clear information to students (and teachers!). The layout is clear and clean. It's readable."
