This comprehensive and penetrating study of American writing traces its colorful development from the first writing produced in the Western Hemisphere, a letter from Christopher Columbus to King Ferdinand, to the works of William Faulkner. Includes an Index. "Mr. Spiller presents a sane and lively synthesis in the name of "historical criticism". He mediates between extremes on the level headed proposition that literature "has a relationship to social and intellectual history, not as documentation, but as symbolic illumination." - New York Times Book Review
