American Writers Supplement I, Parts 1 & 2 By Leonard Unger
Publisher: Charles Scribner's Sons
Number Of Pages: 618
Publication Date: 1979
The American Writers book series, a collection of critical and biographical articles, now covers 219 notable authors from the 17th century to the present day. Signed essays of 12-15 pages in length, by noted scholars, provide thought-provoking insights into the lives, careers, and works. The essays are written in an appealing style, include numerous quotations, and conclude with bibliographies for further study.
The essays contained in the books are appropriate reading for the widest audience, for students in high school and graduate school, for teachers at all levels, for librarians, for editors and reviewers, for American writers themselves, including scholars and critics, and for the general reader. Specialists may in some instances regard the essays as being of primary interest (or as being controversial!), and high-school students will find them within their reach, if not always entirely within their grasp.
