Summary
"This ambitious literary history traces the American novel from its emergence in the late eighteenth century to its diverse incarnations in the multi-ethnic, multi-media culture of the present. Original essays by internationally renowned scholars present fresh readings of American classics and break new ground to show the role of popular genres - such as science fiction and mystery novels - in the creation of the U.S. literary tradition. In an exciting departure from its predecessors, the essays in this book talk to each other. Their dialogue highlights surprising connections within and across eras. As a collective, interwoven chronicle of the nation's dominant literary genre, The Cambridge History of the American Novel will change the way we think about the history - and the future - of American literature"--
