Most widely held works by Jesse S Crisler
Frank Norris : a life by Joseph R McElrath( Book )
9 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 711 libraries worldwide
This is the first complete biography of this centrally important American novelist to appear in seventy years, and anyone familiar with the breezier existing accounts of the man and hungering for the real story will agree that Frank Norris, A Life was worth the wait."--Jacket
The Frederick Douglass papers by Frederick Douglass( Book )
in English and held by 564 libraries worldwide
Charles W. Chesnutt : essays and speeches by Charles W Chesnutt( Book )
6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 528 libraries worldwide
The 77 works included in this volume comprise all of Chesnutt's known works of nonfiction, 38 of which are reprinted here for the first time. They reveal an ardent and often outraged spokesman for the African American whose militancy increased to such a degree that, by 1903, he had more in common with W. E. B. Du Bois than Booker T. Washington. He was, however, a lifelong integrationist and even an advocate of "race amalgamation," seeing interracial marriage as the ultimate means of solving "the Negro Problem," as it was termed at the end of the century. That he championed the African American during the Jim Crow era while opposing Black Nationalism and other "race pride" movements attests to the way Chesnutt defined himself as a controversial figure, in his time and ours

An exemplary citizen : letters of Charles W. Chesnutt, 1906-1932 by Charles W Chesnutt( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 383 libraries worldwide
"This book collects the letters written between 1906 and 1932 by novelist and civil rights activist Charles W. Chesnutt (1858-1932). Between 1885 and 1905, this pioneer in the African-American literary tradition published three novels, two books of short stories, a biography of Frederick Douglass, and many short stories and essays in prestigious periodicals - at the same time managing a stenography and court reporting firm in Cleveland, Ohio. His works, which featured the experiences of African Americans in the ante- and post-bellum period, received favorable reviews. But they did not find a large and appreciative audience until many decades later when both the civil rights movement and increased interest in the African-American contribution to American cultural life resulted in the "rediscovering" of Chesnutt's large body of writings."--Jacket
John Steinbeck : the contemporary reviews by Joseph R McElrath( Book )
12 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 354 libraries worldwide
This volume is the first to collect the critical responses of Steinbeck's generation to his many fiction and non-fiction works, as they appeared from the late 1920s onwards. The articles trace the record of Steinbeck's progress through the 1930s and go on to reflect Steinbeck's steady series of achievements through the 1960s, including his attainment of the Nobel Prize in 1967. These articles offer a means of seeing Steinbeck's writings as they were perceived by his contemporaries, whose task it was first to evaluate and interpret them for an ever-growing readership

Frank Norris Remembered by Jesse S Crisler( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 75 libraries worldwide
Frank Norris Remembered is a collection of reminiscences by Norris's contemporaries, friends, and family that illuminate the life of one of America's most popular novelists. Considering his undergraduate education spent studying art at Académie Julian in Paris and creative writing at Harvard and his journalism career reporting from the far reaches of South Africa and Cuba, it is difficult to fathom how Frank Norris also found time to compose seven novels during the course of his brief life. But despite his adventures abroad, Norris turned out novels at
