Reviews

"This title belongs in every library that supports research in American authors and literature." -- Electronic Resources Review

— Electronic Resources Review

"This database may be used as the student’s first exposure to quality critical analysis; although selective, it provides ample coverage for introductory literature classes. It offers scholarly arguments students may use as a springboard for developing their own critical thinking skills. It is appropriate for both upper-level high school students as well as undergraduates."--The Charleston Advisor (April 2001)

"Suitable for high school students on up. Twayne’s is available as a standalone resource or as an add-on to Gale’s Literature Resource Center." -- School Library Journal (November 2001)
