A Journey Through American Literature (review)

Document Type

Book Review

Publication Date

Summer 2012


This book represents a departure of sorts for Kevin J. Hayes, omnivorous Americanist, author of highly readable intellectual biographies of American figures such as Franklin and Jefferson, Melville and Poe, editor of essential companions to American literature and preeminent bibliographer. A Journey Through American Literature is just that: a topically arranged walk, with a knowledgeable and entertaining guide, through a varied landscape made from almost four centuries of American letters.
