The Oxford History of the Novel in English

Volume 5: The American Novel from Its Beginnings to 1870

Edited by J. Gerald Kennedy and Leland Person

Oxford History of the Novel in English

  • Promises to be the most compendious critical guide to the first phase(s) of the American novel ever published
  • Strikes a balance between a traditionalist major authors/major works approach and newer post-canonical-revisionist, critical race/class/gender, postcolonial, environmental, and history-of-the-book studies
