He also is General Editor for THE NORTON ANTHOLOGY OF ENGLISH LITERATURE. In addition, M. H. Abrams has been the recipient of Guggenheim, Ford Foundation, and Rockefeller Postwar fellowships and the Award for Literature by the American Academy of Arts and Letters (1990).Review:
"The volume is easy to use, complete, with excellent bibliographic references; it has been superb over the years in reflecting and including new developments in literary-critical practices."
"I began using the Abrams Glossary more than 10 years ago, largely because of my respect for Abrams himself as a scholar and literary historian. The entries are clear, up-to-date, and well-researched."
