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.
SUPPLEMENT III, Part I: John Ashbery to Walker Percy SUPPLEMENT III, Part 2: Philip Roth to Louis Zukofsky
The twentynine essays in this third supplement maintain the original goals of the series, each providing—for students in secondary and advanced education, librarians, scholars, critics, and teachers — a comprehensive treatment of the work and life of each author.
