Most widely held works by F. O Matthiessen
American renaissance : art and expression in the age of Emerson and Whitman by F. O Matthiessen( Book )

168 editions published between 1941 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 3,363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American Renaissance has taken its place as the definitive treatment of that most distinguished age of our literature. Centering his discussion around five of its literary giants--Emerson, Thoreau, Hawthorne, Melville, and Whitman--Matthiessen elucidates their conceptions of nature and the function of literature, and the extent to which these were realized in their writings. The breadth of the book lies in the author's use of the five-year period from 1850 to 1855 as a focal point in interpreting what went before and what followed in the development of our prose and poetry. The masterpieces produced in this one extraordinarily concentrated moment of expression, and fully explored in these pages, include Representative Men, Walden, The Scarlet Letter, The House of the Seven Gables, Moby-Dick, Pierre, and Leaves of Grass

Henry James : the major phase by F. O Matthiessen( Book )

53 editions published between 1944 and 1999 in English and held by 1,739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout this volume a study is made of the technique evolved by James to communicate his themes. The gradation of moral awareness in the characters, their dramatic juxtaposition, and the construction of patters of imagery are analyzed to reveal the depth of James' mature work. A final chapter on Portrait of a lady examines James' revisions of this earlier novel as it was reconceived to conform to the style and thought of his "major phase."
