Excerpt from A Century of American Literature: Benjamin Franklin to James Russell Lowell; Selections From a Hundred Authors

In view of that scholarly and elaborate enterprise, the Stedman-Hutchinson Library of American Literature, and of Mr. Morris's entertaining Half Hours with American Authors, to say nothing of an indefinite series of anthologies of one sort and another, it might seem at first glance as if the present collection were on the whole superfluous; I hope, however, that such will not be the verdict of the great mass of readers for whose use it has been prepared. Whether we have or have not, in the strictly critical sense, an American literature, it is certain that histories of that subject have been written and that they demand a fair amount of illustration in the form of extracts which could not, by reason of limitations of space, be introduced to any considerable extent with the current of biographical narrative and æsthetic comment. Such a collection of extracts must not be too voluminous, it must be representative in range, and it must give a definite conception of each writer's method and style. This want the present work undertakes to supply. It is offered, primarily, as a companion to all existing histories of American literature, and as such I trust it may find a welcome.

But I have not, in making and arranging these selections, kept entirely to this primary object.
