"Scribner launches a new literature reference source with these volumes, accompaniments to its well-established American Writers and British Writers series. While those series focus on writers, the new ones concentrate on works. Each volume contains extensive essays on 20 literary classics in various genres, selected after researching the curriculum and consulting professors. ... An essay of around 20 pages in length is devoted to each classic and enhanced by a chronology of events in the author�s life and a select bibliography of primary and secondary materials. ... These new series should prove to be very useful complements to the American and British Writers families of literary reference tools." -- Booklist (July 2003)
On American Classics:
"This source will be useful to high school and undergraduate students needing background information on these popular authors and their works. The well-written essays will provide them with a good starting point for further research. This set may be most worthwhile for teachers and professors teaching these works in their classroom as they provide substantial topics for discussion. This set is recommended for high school and undergraduate library collections."
On British Classics:
"Each essay provides a historical overview of the work and its influences, a close reading of the work�s basic elements (e.g., imagery, allusions), and discusses the critical reception of the work at the time it was published as well as its importance of the time. This volume will be useful to student�s needing additional information on these popular works, for teachers preparing for their courses, and for graduate students preparing for comprehensive exams. High school and university libraries should consider its purchase, especially those that own other titles in the Scribner Writers Series." -- ARBA (January 2003)
