Students needing to write papers on American literature need look no further than the Research Guide to American Literature set. This set features seven indispensable handbooks that provide useful strategies for studying and writing about frequently taught literary topics in the classroom. Each volume contains dozens of study guides on a particular period in American literature—including colonial literature, early American literature, romanticism and transcendentalism, realism and regionalism, American modernism, postwar literature, and contemporary literature. Each of the study guides examines a particular work, author, movement, or theme, providing an overview, suggesting fruitful areas of research and potential writing topics, and listing the best secondary sources.
The Research Guide to American Literature set provides students and researchers with the necessary background to ask the right questions and figure out how to get the information they need. An index, bibliography, and glossary enhance these essential first-stop guides.
