Quick Reference

Literary study by Alfred Kazin, published in 1942. Subtitled “An Interpretation of Modern American Prose Literature,” the work, covering the half century 1890–1940, conceives that “our modern literature in America is at bottom only the experience of our modern life in America” and that this study “is in part an effort at moral history, which is greater than literary history, and is needed to illuminate it.”
