about this item

"The Historical Explorations of Literature series is designed to help students to understand key works of American literature by putting them in the context of history, society, and culture through historical context essays, literary analysis, chronologies, primary source documents, and suggestions for further research. Each volume in the series covers four or five canonical works related to a particular area of American literature--significant literary productions of the Jazz Age or the Harlem Renaissance, for example. For each title covered, students will find a brief synopsis of the work; separate essays on the work's historical background and the author's biographical background; an essay on "Why We Read This Work," summarizing the work's enduring value and significance; and a series of thematic "Historical Explorations" that include a selection of related primary documents"--
