Introducing Twayne’s Authors Online: the unique breadth and depth of Twayne’s Authors Series — plus three new collections — now in eBook format.
In its new eBook format on Gale Virtual Reference Library, Twayne’s Authors Online provides faculty, students and library patrons a unique perspective on the most important authors — their lives, their works and the worlds they lived in.
Each 175- to 200-page treatment features interpretations and critiques, written by scholars during the same period in which the work originated. As such, Twayne’s Authors Online is not only a valuable resource for literary study, but for multidisciplinary study through literature — including history, society and culture.
