About this title


G. K. Hall's three series of critical essays give comprehensive coverage of major authors worldwide and throughout history. The full range of literary traditions and schools is represented. Each new volume is carefully conceived and developed to fill a gap in the literary criticism available today. Volume editors are established authorities on the lives, works, and critical receptions of their subjects. They are uniquely qualified to ensure the spectrum of critical controversies, trends, and techniques inspired by their subjects in their own countries and abroad, in their own eras and today. Each volume features: an introduction which provides the reader with a lucid overview of criticism from its beginnings; illuminating controversies, evaluating approaches, and sorting out the schools of thought; the most influential reviews and the best of reprinted scholarly essays; a section devoted exclusively to reviews and reactions by the subject's contemporaries original essays, new translations; and revisions commissioned especially for the series previously unpublished materials such as interviews, lost letters, and manuscript fragments; a bibliography of the subject's writings and interviews; and a name and subject index. One of America's most distinguished men of letters, Reynolds Price has written prolifically about his home state of North Carolina many plays and novels set there. In addition to his works, "A Generous Man," "Good Hearts," "Love and Work," "Kate Vaiden," "Blue Calhoun," "A Long and Happy Life," and "Three Gospels," he also penned two books of memoirs and translations of sections of the Bible. In this important collection of reviews, essays, andreminiscences, James Schiff assembles a range of writings on the Duke University teacher and his celebrated output.


39 previously published and original reminiscences, reviews, and critical essays about Price, author of A Long and Happy Life , The Surface of Earth , and Kate Vaiden . Contributors include Toni Morrison, Granville Hicks, Eudora Welty, Joyce Carol Oates, Anthony Burgess, and Allen Shepherd. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
