This book provides a wonderful introduction to American literature in the period from 1820 to 1865. Each of the ten chapters focuses on an important writer of that period, and includes: biographical and historical background, philosophical and psychological considerations, and thoughtful analysis of one or more of the writer's works. Professor Melissa McFarland Pennell has created a fine tapestry, weaving these writers' lives and their works into the evolution of the United States during that turbulent time.
