The chronology of American literature : America's literary achievements from the colonial era to modern times by Daniel S Burt( Book )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If you are looking to brush up on your literary knowledge, check a favorite author's work, or see a year's bestsellers at a glance, The Chronology of American Literature is the perfect resource. At once an authoritative reference and an ideal browser's guide, this book outlines the indispensable information in America's rich literary past-from major publications to lesser-known gems--while also identifying larger trends along the literary timeline. Who wrote the first published book in America? When did Edgar Allan Poe achieve notoriety as a mystery writer? What was Hemingway's breakout title? With more than 8,000 works by 5,000 authors, The Chronology makes it easy to find answers to these questions and more. Authors and their works are grouped within each year by category: fiction and nonfiction; poems; drama; literary criticism; and publishing events. Short, concise entries describe an author's major works for a particular year while placing them within the larger context of that writer's career. The result is a fascinating glimpse into the evolution of some of America's most prominent writers. Perhaps most important, The Chronology offers an invaluable line through our literary past, tying literature to the American experience-war and peace, boom and bust, and reaction to social change. You'll find everything here from Benjamin Franklin's Experiments and Observations on Electricity, to Davy Crockett's first memoir; from Thoreau's Civil Disobedience to Edith Wharton' Ethan Frome; from meditations by James Weldon Johnson and James Agee to poetry by Elizabeth Bishop. Also included here are seminal works by authors such as Rachel Carson, Toni Morrison, John Updike, and Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. Lavishly illustrated-and rounded out with handy bestseller lists throughout the twentieth century, lists of literary awards and prizes, and authors birth and death dates-The Chronology of American Literature belongs on the shelf of every bibliophile and literary enthusiast. It is the essential link to our literary past and present

What historical novel do I read next?( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The standard guides to historical fiction of all times and places are very out-of-date. Ernest Baker's Guide to Historical Fiction was published in 1914 and the tenth edition of Leonard B. Irwin's Guide to Historical Fiction, the most recent comprehensive guide, was published in 1971 (and is currently out of print). Consequently, this new set, an annotated bibliography of some 7000 historical novels for adults, meets a real need. Most entries include brief information about the novel's author, and all include details about each novel's characters, time period, subject, locale, and plot. Only books easily available in libraries or bookstores are included. The indexes--by time period, historical character, place, and subject--are particularly useful, but there are also listings by author, title, fictional character name, and profession/occupation. Looking for novels set in the 1850s? There are 264 listed. Novels set in Detroit? Ten can be found here. Translations of works first written in languages other than English are also included."--Library Journal
