George L. McMichael’s Concise Anthology of American Literature was a nice mixture of authors with a focus of giving a taste of literature from different time periods of American’s writing history. I enjoyed a lot of the history, as well as the added historical information.
Reading this book was to fulfill a course requirement, and I highly doubt there would be many people looking to read this book purely out of enjoyment. However, I did find it interesting and can say I honestly learned a good deal about American Literature. I could see myself keeping this text awhile as a reference while I continue on with my educational journey.
Have you read this heavy book? What did you think of it?
