iming “to offer a comprehensive view of how an author’s work fits within the context of the author’s life, historical events, and the literary world,” this title includes some 500 writers. Authors traditionally studied in literature classes as well as those whose works currently top the best-seller lists are among the wordsmiths found in the set. Entries are organized into three main sections: “Works in Biographical and Historical Context,” “Works in Literary Context,” and “Works in Critical Context.” Additional features are a “Key Facts” segment that lists birth and death dates and major works; “Responses to Literature,” with suggestions for discussion and writing assignments; and “Further Reading,” providing a brief bibliography.
