"This comparatively slender volume has a lot to offer.. The author provides convincing analysis and fresh observations, which create a 'literary map' for the readers to start their own explorations of vital and diverse US literary development. What's also important, he does this in a clear language, practically devoid of professional jargon." - Vladimir Prozorov, Karelian Pedagogical University. American Studies International Vol xxxix, No 2.
