About this title
This volume features articles on over 100 American writers and novelists who are the most widely read in American Schools and colleges. The essays are subdivided into sections that summarize the author's achievements, present a biographical sketch and analyze the individual's work.From School Library Journal:
Grade 9 Up-An evocative image of an Underwood typewriter alongside a stack of books adorns the volumes in this sturdy and useful reference work on 120 best-known writers of the 19th and 20th centuries. The selected authors are novelists whose works are included in the core curriculum of high school and undergraduate literature studies. Louisa May Alcott, Ernest Hemingway, J. D. Salinger, and Mark Twain appear along with John Irving, Jamaica Kincaid, Stephen King, and Amy Tan. The alphabetically arranged entries average 10-to-12 pages in length; most include a black-and-white portrait. Each one lists principal works and achievements, and includes a biographical sketch and an annotated bibliography. Authoritative analyses of selected works form the bulk of the entries. While 10 of the articles are new, the remainder have been updated from Frank N. Magill's Critical Survey of Long Fiction (Salem, 1991). As in any subjective collection, readers may question some of the choices; nonetheless, students will find this a practical reference tool that illuminates the talents of many of America's finest novelists.
