Bracken's (librarian, Ohio State U.) two-volume work falls between the highly selective, basic undergraduate literary research guides and the more comprehensive, sophisticated graduate level guides. Volume one includes more than 500 critically annotated entries, with extensive sub-entries, for general and specialized research guides, all extensively cross-referenced. Volume II: English and American writers is scheduled for publication in Spring, 1991. For undergraduate, graduate, junior college, and medium to large public libraries.
