The writer in America by Van Wyck Brooks( Book )

First conceived to explain his reasons for writing the Makers and Finders series, for which Brooks was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, in this, one of his last wokrks, he lets loose a withering blast at those writers who failed to attain 'maturity' and at the "cult of youth" which has established a tradition of adolescence in American writing. At the same time he defines the traditions of American literature and calls out for a liberal humanism with a positive set of values

New England Indian Summer: 1865-1915. The second of the author's Makers and Finders series on American culture is an anecdotally rich, impressionistic view of the American literary scene in the postbellum period. Brooks's clarity and vivid style help produce one of the rarest of successes: literary criticism on the bestseller list
