“Essential for any collection in American literature.”
Redefining American Literary History presents seventeen essays and six bibliographies linked, in the words of the introduction, by “a commitment to deal with history and attributes of literature in ways that have been slighted in the making of previous literary histories of the United States.” The volume suggests methods for redefining the American literary canon and emphasizes African American, American Indian, Asian American, Chicano, Hispanic, and Puerto Rican literatures.
