We have 11 short pieces by Poe on writers such as Longfellow and Hawthorne; Melville's 'Hawthorne and His Mosses"; Bayard Taylor's "Diversions of the Echo Club", on many 19-century American authors; Henry James' "Hawthorne" (complete); Twain's famous ""Fenimore Cooper's Literary Offenses" (hilarious, worth the price of admission alone); William Dean Howells on Twain; a long piece by Henry Adams on George Cabot Lodge; D.H. Lawrence's well-known "Studies in Classic American Literature" (complete, also wonderful); and 90 pages of H. L. Mencken, including a very perceptive piece on Dreiser, easily the best thing I've ever read on him.
This is a book to dip into at leisure, and savor some fine writing about fine writing. But why is it out of print?
