Warren Pendleton Carrier, Kenneth A. Oliver
National Council of Teachers of English, 1980 - Literary Criticism - 237 pages
This guide, a revision of a 1966 work by Robert O'Neal, is intended to encourage reading beyond the traditional English and American literature texts by making available a useful resource in an area where few teachers have adequate preparation. The guide contains comparative reviews of the works of 136 authors and of seven works without known authors. The works represent various genres from classical to modern times and are drawn from Asia and Africa as well as from South America and Europe. Each review provides information about the author, a short summary of the work itself, a discussion of other works by the author, and a comparison of the work with similar works. Lists of literature anthologies and of works of literary history and criticism are appended. (FL)
