Recent Americanist scholarship has generated some of the most forceful responses to questions about literary history and theory. Yet too many of the most provocative essays have been scattered among a wide variety of narrowly focused publications. Covering the study of US literature from its origins through the present American Literary History provides a much-needed forum for the various often competing voices of contemporary literary inquiry. Along with an annual special issue the journal features essay-reviews commentaries and critical exchanges. It welcomes articles on historical and theoretical problems as well as writers and works. Inter-disciplinary studies from related fields are also invited.
