About this title


Essays discuss Hawthorne, Twain, Conrad, Hemingway, Faulkner, Melville, Whittier, Frost, and Coleridge.

From Library Journal:

All these literary essays are "selected" rather than "new," for though six of the 13 appear in book form for the first time, they were all published in such journals as Kenyon Review and Sewanee Review between the 1940s and late 1970s. Though Warren's fame, earned through his fiction and poetry, will attract readers, most of these essays do not reveal much about their author. They are best approached as introductory pieces on literature, especially on American classics. Warren makes the reader feel safe--almost too safe--in his hands: without undertaking many risks or surprises, he still succeeds in reviewing the key moral and psychological issues. His syntheses of views on fundamental literary themes could be helpful to a broad range of lay readers and undergraduates.
