This new wing of the Scribner Writers Series takes that series' enduringly popular format -- the 20 page essay accessible to the general reader or student -- and applies it to the most-studied literary masterpieces. Each of the 20-25 essays in this volume focuses on a single work of American Literature. Written in clear, jargon-free style by college and university professors, each essay explores the nuances of a particular work -- themes, characterization, use of language -- enabling the student to comprehend, interpret and write about the classics. Volume 1 includes essays on Toni Morrison's "Beloved," J.D. Salinger's "Catcher in the Rye," Willa Cather's "My Antonia," Jack Kerouac's "On the Road," Stephen Crane's "The Red Badge of Courage," Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Scarlet Letter" and others.

Constraints on freedom, education, and individual dignity have always been fundamental in determining who is able to write, when, and where. Considering the singular experience of the African American writer, William W. Cook and James Tatum here argue that African American literature did not develop apart from canonical Western literary traditions but instead grew out of those literatures, even as it adapted and transformed the cultural traditions and religions of Africa and the African diaspora along the way. Tracing the interaction between African American writers and the literatures of ancient Greece and Rome, from the time of slavery and its aftermath to the civil rights era and on into the present, the authors offer a sustained and lively discussion of the life and work of Phillis Wheatley, Frederick Douglass, Ralph Ellison, and Rita Dove, among other highly acclaimed poets, novelists, and scholars. Assembling this brilliant and diverse group of African American writers at a moment when our understanding of classical literature is ripe for change, the authors paint an unforgettable portrait of our own reception of “classic” writing, especially as it was inflected by American racial politics.

Gay and lesbian themes in Latin American literature have been largely ignored. This reference fills this gap by providing more than a hundred alphabetically arranged entries for Latin American authors who have treated gay or lesbian material in their works. Each entry explores the significance of gay and lesbian themes in a particular author's writings and closes with a bibliography of primary and secondary sources. The figures included have a professed gay identity, or have written on gay or lesbian themes in either a positive or negative way, or have authored works in which a gay sensibility can be identified. The volume pays particular attention to the difficulty of ascribing North American critical perspectives to Latin American authors, and studies these authors within the larger context of Latin American culture. The book includes entries for men and women, and for authors from Latin American countries as well as Latino writers from the United States. The entries are written by roughly 60 expert contributors from Latin America, the U.S., and Europe.
