Literaturgeschichte der USA = Literary history of the USA

By Mario Klarer (NHC Fellow, 1995–96; 2000–01)

Munich: C.H. Beck, 2013

From the publisher’s description:

US literary history describes literary creation in the North American areas of what is now the United States, from its beginnings in the Age of Discovery to the present day. In this overview, Mario Klarer shows how an initially imported colonial perspective developed into an increasingly independent literary tradition with growing settlement. Brief stylistic and narrative analyzes of central texts of the American literary canon tell the story of continuity and innovation using the example of the most important eras, authors and genres of American literature.
