This is a great reference tool! Most chronologies just give authors and titles. This one suggests what each work is about and why it's interesting and important. Moreover, the listing of bestsellers and prize winners gathers brings together this information that you formerly needed multiple sources to find. I also think the introductions to each section are lively and informative.
A must for anyone interested in American Literature.

Informative Resource for Teachers and Literature Aficionados Jan. 16 2013
By Education Advocate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book used from one of Amazon's affiliates, and it is in amazing condition. It looks completely new and unused. I am very satisfied with the quality of the book and the shipping and arrival times.

The contents of the book itself are very are a very interesting and thoughtfully organized chronology, thus the title, and by genre, which coincides, for the most part, with the era. What I particularly like about the book is that when I teach literature and film and ask my students to imagine what the characters in the novels and films might have been reading if they were real people, they can refer to this book and make educated guesses about their potential reading material based upon their, the characters', personalities and interests. This adds a dimension to the students' engagement with the books and films that we are critiquing.

Additionally, as an amateur writer, I can use this as a source to give me background information to make my characters more realistic. I use The Chronology of American Literature in conjunction with Grun's The Timetables of History, an Amazon purchase. By using these two sources together, I can accurately place my characters in history.

In conclusion, I strongly recommend Burt's Chronology for any teacher, reader, or writer.

TOTALLY FALSE DESCRIPTION July 5 2013
By D.B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I ordered this book From more than words and the description implied it was writings from the colonial period to the present. What I got was a 1000 pages of short bios of authors. I wrote to the seller and they said it was Amazons fault because they write the book description . IT WAS TOTALLY MISLEADING . I have 4 books in my save for later file and I am having second thoughts about ordering any more books from AMAZON
