KIRKUS REVIEW

An amazing amount of concrete information, of critical appreciation and literary commentary is packed into this small book, which is virtually a bird's eye view of the total plan of American literature, and not only American literature per so, but in relation to English literature which gave it birth. A short cut for those who wont delve for themselves, a stimulant for those who need a bit of inspired urging, a ""syllabus"" for those who would sharpen up their mental equipment gone dull from disuse.
