"Parrington's place in the history of American literary thought ... and his monumental three-volume study was regarded as the definitive assessment of American letters. So dominant was Main Currents that the years from 1927 through the early 1950s might well be termed 'the age of Parrington'. ... [N]o one has provided a representation of the history of American cultural production that was so exciting, so alive with the pulse of pressing social realities of contemporary life, so unabashedly partisan and dialectical, and so 'American' as did Parrington."--Russell J. Reising, American Quarterly
