Gr 9 Up-From Edward Abbey to Louis Zukofsky, this wonderfully browsable volume will be a grand addition to any collection. It includes more than 1100 signed entries covering the Colonial period to the present and examines such topics as "Children's Literature," "Gay Male Literature," "Transcendentalism," and "Utopia." The articles are well written, well researched, and, well, quite readable. They vary in length from six paragraphs on the pop-culturalist Tama Janowitz to seven pages on Herman Melville.
