Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A Preface to Colonial American Poetry" is a practical source for anyone interested in American literature. Encyclopedic and groundbreaking, "A Preface to Colonial American Poetry" presents a critical, analytical survey of Colonial American poetry within the context of American literature in general. In clear and easy to understand language, the book chronicles significant events from the arrival of the first emigrants at the Jamestown colony to the Declaration of Independence. The poetry of New England, Middle and South colonies is discussed with its fascinating interplay of diverse influences. The early settlers had already burned most of their bridges to the traditional culture behind them when they sailed for America and yet their writers kept looking back for inspiration. Author Wisam Khalid brings his modest experience with foreign students to the formation of this book to help international students better understand American history and literature in terms of discovery, foundation, periods and pioneers. Author Wisam Khalid has tailored this book to fit the needs of not only foreign seekers but also native undergraduates who will find interesting comparative insights into American and English poetry.
