Quick Reference

Collection begun in 1982 of major writings by leading American authors (Literary Classics of the United States) in a series of well-made, readable volumes addressed to a general public rather than to scholars. In keeping with a proposal made in 1968 by Edmund Wilson, each volume contains several works by one author in authoritative texts, introduced by a brief essay and a basic chronology but with a minimum of annotation and editorial apparatus. Approximately 100 volumes are projected, some to contain the writing of more than one author and some to include works of literary significance by historians, philosophers, social and religious thinkers, travelers, explorers, and nature writers.
