This is the first book to examine the literary history of the United States in terms of the chronological occurrence of significant events and activities. This comprehensive volume lists the dates of birth and death of literary figures, important historical facts, and the authors and titles of works published for each year, from Colonial times to the present. The compiler's introduction offers an interesting and informative discussion of how, from little more than a list of author's titles, and events, we may observe a year in the history of a nation, through the political, scientific, and social developments that fired the imaginations of America's writers, and fed the appetites of a growing reading public.

"The publication of this reference book will be of inestimable value, not only to scholars and critics writing on the impact of social, political, medical, artistic, religious, and historical events and activities on the literary history and development of the United States, but to general education faculty planning readings for core curriculum courses.

Rogal lists births and deaths of literary figures; major literary events and activities; and authors and titles of fiction, poetry, drama, essays, and other writings of major and many minor American writers from many different disciplines. This work also contains a brief introductory essay, key to abbreviations used throughout the text, a list of reference sources in American literature used by the author in compilation of this book, and an index of authors and events."-ARBA
