Description - American Literature by Stephen Matterson
Comprising over 400 entries, this is a concise glossary of American literature, covering key works and writers, historical events, literary terms and movements from Colonial times to the modern day. Each entry is succinct and because of the suggestions for further reading the glossary can be used both to check facts and start further research. It offers a useful reference companion for anyone with an interest in American literature and should also prove useful in related areas such as American history and American Studies who needs a concise guide to literature. The book's "Index of Works and Writers" makes it doubly useful as a reference work, allowing the reader to find information quickly on hundreds of works of writers not listed in individual entries.
