A Critical Bibliography of American Literature Studies 1954-1994: Box Set
April 1998, Wiley-Blackwell
Now Blackwell Publishers present special editions of these important documents, the English Association Critical Bibliographies. The value of the special editions lies in the re-formatting and collation of the vast amount of data currently available in the 75 annual volumes. The material has been collated into topic-based volumes dealing with a specific period, subject or major author as documented over a number of years. Where formerly all references to American Literature, would have to have been researched from a collection spanning three-quarters of a century, everything published in this area can now be accessed directly in the special edition boxed set, saving valuable time and research resources. The result is a reference series that provides specialists in a specific literary field with a tailor-made account of his or her area of study.
The English Association Critical Bibliographies also make an important contribution to our cultural history. The volumes offer a unique insight into the way the study and teaching of literature over the century has been institutionalized, transformed and by whom. In the current climate of cultural dispute, scholars are given a chance in these volumes to address the question as to how and why literary study has evolved as it has.
Bibliographical coverage of American Literature Studies began in 1954, with a general and then period by period survey (of fifteen double-column pages) by Marcus Cunliffe. He begins, appropriately, with a review of the analytical index to the journal American Literature, published by Duke University and the American Literature Group of the Modern Language Association, and closes with reviews of studies in the modern American novel as written by Hemingway and by Faulkner. The series continues down to 1994, concluding with more than a 130 pages of reviews by two teams of scholars dealing with the nineteenth- (chronologically: to 1830; 1830-65; 1865-1900) and twentieth-centuries (on Poetry, Fiction 1900-45, Fiction Since 1945, and Drama).
