Publisher Comments:

As part of the Penguin Academics series, American Literature offers a wide range of selections with minimal editorial apparatus at an affordable price.

Longman is proud to announce the Penguin Academics Series Edition of American Literature. The Penguin Academics Series, in the tradition of Penguin Publishers, offers highly respected, highly affordable, trade-format books by preeminent scholars.

American Literature emphasizes its range of selections and minimal apparatus, challenging the existing books on the market by offering a briefer and less expensive book. Rather than including dry academic period overviews, American Literature uses a “Letter to the Reader” format to give students the contextual information they need for each major historical period. Through a packaging relationship with Penguin Classics, we can offer larger works without increasing the page count.
