About This Item

Dutton, NY, no date. 1st edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Van Wyck Brooks (1886-1963) is still a literary-cultural presence today because he sought 'a usable past' for American creative talent in the 1910s, because he explored the cultural/ material tensions in American life... [and because] he fought against Eliot and formalism in the 1930s and '40s..." [Kirkus] Van Wyck Brooks brought to the fore, the importance of the literary contributions by such major 19th century authors as Walt Whitman, Herman Melville, Washington Irving, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Stephen Crane, Bret Harte, Theodore Dreiser, and Samuel Clements... He won the Pulitzer Prize for history in 1937. Because of his work as a literary critic of 19th century literature, Van Wyck Brooks was considered to be the chronicler of America's Literary Heritage. [New Netherland Institute] Definitive biography. There is a protective mylar cover. STATED 1ST EDITION.
