Abstract:

"Developed at Columbia University's Center for American Culture Studies, Major Characters in American Fiction offers a true representation of the diversity of American literature. Its essays on the "lives" of nearly 1,600 characters explore all the richness of American society through figures as varied in ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, age, and experience as the American people." "Inhabiting fictional works written from 1790 through 1991, the figures profiled in Major Characters are presented in biographical essays that tell each one's life story and are drawn from novels and short stories that represent every era, genre, and style of American fictional writing."--Jacket.
