The completion of this renowned series is a landmark event in the field of American literature. Now available together as a set, the eight volumes of this History offer the most comprehensive narrative and analysis of four centuries of achievement in all genres of writing. The authors include many of the most eminent scholars working in the field today. Spanning three decades of achievement in American literary criticism, they represent the continuities as well as the disruptions sustained between generations of scholarship.
