Reviews
"Just as approaches to literary studies have evolved, A Glossary of Literary Terms, has met the challenge of evolving and morphing into just what is needed for undergraduates, graduates, and professors of English and American Literature."

"This book is unique, superior because of the comprehensive, synthesizing, essay-based approach and its lucidity . . .essays are ambitiously comprehensive yet succinct . . .This book is second to none."
