Synopsis: Lawrence asserted that 'the proper function of a critic is to save the tale from the artist who created it'. In these highly individual, penetrating essays he has exposed 'the American whole soul' within some of that continent's major works of literature. In seeking to establish the status of writings by such authors as Poe, Melville, Fenimore Cooper and Whitman, Lawrence himself has created a classic work. Studies in Classic American Literature is valuable not only for the light it sheds on eighteenth- and nineteenth-century American consciousness, telling 'the truth of the day', but also as a prime example of Lawrence's learning, passion and integrity of judgement.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Book Description: Studies in Classic American Literature, first published in 1923 and long out of print, provides a cross-section of Lawrence's writing on American literature, including landmark essays on Benjamin Franklin, Fenimore Cooper, Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Herman Melville and Walt Whitman. This volume offers the final 1923 version of the text in a newly corrected and uncensored form, as well as earlier, often very different, versions of many of the essays, and a host of other materials, including four different versions of Lawrence's pioneering essay on Whitman.

Book Description Viking, 1970. Paperback. Condition: Good. No Jacket. Viking 1970, Ninth Printing Trade Paperback. Clean cover, corner creases, spine hinge rubbed. Pages have underlining and minimal highlighting. Edmund Wilson has written that Lawrence reads and reviews these 'few' American literature works with a perspective that would not be possible for an American. He read those books for their meaning in the life of the western world as a whole. Many later critics and reviewers have come to rediscover these classics and echoes Lawrence's judgments of these works. Among these classics are Benjamin Franklin's Autobiography; Cooper's Leatherstocking novels; some of Poe's Gothic tales; Hawthorne's Scarlet Letter; Melville's Moby Dick and Whitman's Leaves of Grass. This literary achievement of Lawrence's has since become a classic. New York: Viking, 1970 Ninth Printing. 5"x7.75" tall; viii, 177pp. Seller Inventory # 52948
