Dream of the Great American Novel by Lawrence Buell Dream of the Great American Novel, Paperback (May 2016)

The first book in many years to take in the full sweep of national fiction, The Dream of the Great American Novel explains why this supposedly antiquated idea continues to thrive. It shows that four G.A.N. "scripts" are keys to the dynamics of American literature and identity--and to the myth of a nation perpetually under construction.

Emerson and Neo-Confucianism by Lawrence Buell Emerson and Neo-Confucianism, Hardback (February 2014)

A comparative investigation of Emerson's Transcendental thought and Zhu Xi's Neo-Confucianism, this book shows how both thinkers traced the human morality to the same source in the ultimately moral nature of the universe and developed theories of the interrelation of universal law and the human mind.

Shades of the Planet by Lawrence Buell Shades of the Planet, Paperback (March 2007)

In a globalizing age, studying American literature in isolation from the rest of the world seems less and less justified. But is the conceptual box of the nation dispensable? And what would American literature look like without it? This book takes up this debate.
