Richard Wright
September 4, 1908- November 28, 1960
Critical Insights: Richard Wright
Wright produced an incredible variety of work in various genres and media: journalism and cultural criticism, poetry, short and long fiction, essays and articles, and pieces for the theater, radio, and film. This volume covers the highlights of that output from the fiction and autobiography of  Uncle Tom’s Children , his earliest success, to his unpublished novel  A Father’s Law, found by his daughter Julia, his literary executor, shortly after his death.

Stephen King
September 21, 1947
Critical Insights: Stephen King
Stephen King has been terrifying readers ever since  Carrie  was published in 1974. For forty-five years, he has fed our imaginations with a panoply of spooks and monsters, from telekinetic teenagers, vampires, and malevolent clowns to space aliens, crazed fans, haunted hotels, and our own psyches. Though the National Book Foundation awarded King its Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters in 2003, critics such as Harold Bloom have continued to dismiss him as just another catalyst in "the shocking process of dumbing down our cultural life."

F. Scott Fitzgerald
September 24, 1896- December 21, 1940
Critical Insights: F. Scott Fitzgerald
First bursting into the American consciousness with the evanescently lyrical  This Side of Paradise , Fitzgerald seemed to have a charmed life. Overnight, he became wealthy, married the girl of his dreams, and set about living the sort of beautiful, stylish life most of us only dream of. But in time the grandeur faded, as it does from the lives of his best characters, in a haze of parties, marital discord, and squandered youth and potential.

T.S. Eliot
September 26, 1888- December 4, 1965
Critical Insights: T.S. Eliot
A collection of fourteen essays by leading scholars examining the poetry, plays, criticism, and life of the Nobel laureate T. S. Eliot. Representing the best of a broad range of critical perspectives from the psychoanalytic to the poststructural, the volume serves as an excellent introduction to Eliot's works and the critical conversation surrounding them. Each piece is introduced by John Paul Riquelme, Professor of English at Boston University and author of  Harmony of Dissonances: T. S. Eliot, Romanticism, and Imagination  (1991). In his introductions, Riquelme distills each author's key insights and relates them to the wider conversation of Eliot's work.

Set in an Oregon psychiatric hospital in the early 1960s, Ken Kesey's pivotal novel tackled ideas of institutionalization in a time when mental illness was highly stigmatized.
