Great book, poor Kindle edition2018年6月11日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
The book is excellent. It’s a history of literature that’s not afraid to express the authors’ idiosyncratic views. It gives historical background without losing focus on the authors and the literature they wrote. It’s also very readable. Unfortunately, the Kindle edition is a mess. Many words throughout the book are broken into syllables. In some sections letters are missing from words or replaced with incorrect characters. Clearly there was no effort at editing. It’s a shame since it mars such an excellent book. If you can’t get the book any other way (like me) it’s still usable. But buy the hard copy if you have a choice.

Literature History in a fun and readable medium2013年9月25日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I was so tired of boring text-book style reads in which I was being lectured from the pages and lacked any kind of involvement or attachment to the sibject matter. I expected the same from this book and was dreading reading it when it was assigned for an American Literature class. I was sorely disapointed but in a good way! The authors have found a way to balance information with approachableness and for once I didn't feel lectured, but rather engaged in the subject matter. It was so good I read beyond what was required for the class and finished it. If you are taking an American Lit class, I recommend it even if your professor doesn't and if you are interested in writing I would recommend it also as it is enlightening and a good read!
If I taught American History in college I would require this book!2014年10月4日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
If I taught American History in college I would require this book! I have been teaching American Lit for high school students for the past 7 years and I believe that this is a fantastic addition to my library. It adds a fullness and historical insight into the events of the periods, and best of all, it has suggested works that I am now using in my class.
A concise and enriching look at the history of American Literature2010年9月21日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
An exceptional book for a concise, in a nutshell history of American Literature. I was assigned this book for a graduate class, which was surprising considering that it inexpensive. It's a book I've returned to and plan on returning to in the future.
