A historical guide to Henry David Thoreau( )

16 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As an essayist, philosopher, ex-pencil manufacturer, notorious hermit, tax protester, and all-around original thinker, Thoreau led so singular a life that he is in some ways a perfect candidate for the historical and biographical treatments made possible by the Historical Guides to American Authors series format. William E. Cain, the volume editor, includes contributions on his relationship with 19th century authority and concepts of the land, which should help the volume's reach beyond those who read Thoreau for illumination to those general readers who love him for embodying the spirit of American rebellion

The crisis in criticism : theory, literature, and reform in English studies by William E Cain( Book )

20 editions published between 1984 and 1987 in English and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a statement of my views on a number of problems in literary theory and contemporary criticism. But it is also - as any theoretical study must be - a progress report, a record of inquiry that has not yet concluded. In a sense, a book on "theory" cannot really end. At a certain point, work on it ceases, even though one continues to think critically and skeptically about the problems - and the solutions - that the book contains."--Preface. p. xi

A group of Utopians, unhappy with dissolute, mid-nineteenth-century America, takes to the pastoral life; but the members find little satisfaction in farmwork and communal life because of competing ambitions and idealism.
