Summary
"What can there possibly be left to say about ...?" This common litany, resonant both in and outside academia, reflects a growing sense that the number of subjects and authors appropriate for literary study is rapidly becoming exhausted. Take heart, admonishes Richard Kopley in this dynamic new anthology, for this is decidedly not the case. While generations of literary study have unquestionably covered much ground in analyzing canonical writers, many aspects of even the most well-known authors - both their lives and their work - remain underexamined. An indispensable recource for scholar and student alike, Prospects for the Study of American Literature belongs on the bookshelf of anyone seriously interested in American letters
