GREAT AMERICAN AUTHORS: Since 1650

REVIEW "A useful, well-organized introduction to American literature to introduce or recap important literary periods and authors." - Booklist

PRODUCT INFORMATION Presented by Jane Kaczmarek, Great American Authors: Since 1650 denotes the rich, literary tradition of American storytelling...No country has produced a more im- pressive group of writers in a shorter period of time than America. It has been an incredible journey of finding the nation's voice, beginning with the first colonists in the 17th Century, to a small cadre of brilliant 19th Century New England writers who defined the unique American experience and soul, to the whole country speaking out in the 20th Century against war, poverty, racism and alienation.
