American Mystery by Tony Tanner
Book DescriptionThe late Tony Tanner was one of the most distinctive and distinguished critical voices on American literature. His work is familiar to generations of students and scholars, and has helped shape our understanding of the major nineteenth and twentieth century American writers. With a foreword by Edward Said and an introduction by Ian Bell which places Tanner's work in the larger context of critical approaches to American literature and culture in recent years, the book brings together Tanner's essays on a wide range of key American authors. Exploring writers as diverse as Melville, Emerson, Henry James, DeLillo and Pynchon, it offers an introduction to the major figures and themes in nineteenth and twentieth century American literature.

Prefaces to Shakespeare, Paperback (May 2012)
In the final ten years of his life, the author tackled the largest project any critic in English can take on - writing a preface to each of Shakespeare's plays. This title collects these prefaces. It introduces some of the most significant scholarship on Shakespeare to show the reader how certain critics frame large issues in a useful way.
Great Gatsby, Hardback (November 2010)
For Jay Gatsby - young, handsome, fabulously rich - always seems alone in the crowd, watching and waiting, though no one knows what for. Beneath the shimmering surface of his life he is hiding a secret: a silent longing for the one thing that will always be out of his reach. And soon this destructive obsession will force his world to unravel.
