From the cover: “The Cambridge Illustrated History of American Literature is a richly illustrated, authoritative account of the entire span of American literature from its beginnings in the seventeenth century to the writing of the 1980s. In a single, comprehensive volume Peter Conn summarizes the distinctive achievements of the novelists, poets, playwrights, and prose writers who have produced America’s literary heritage. While the focus is on literary texts, the book’s seven chapters also locate American writing in relevant historical and cultural contexts.”
