There is a considerable period in every man’s life, when the best thing he can do is to let his mind soak and tan in the vats of literature.
The Road to a Liberal Education
Charles Francis
Adams, Jr.
A Library of American Literature
From the Earliest Settlement to the Present Time
In Eleven Volumes
 
Compiled and Edited by
Edmund Clarence Stedman and
Ellen Mackay Hutchinson
 
This extraordinary man-woman editorial partnership revived neglected works and created the essential reference for American studies for generations of scholars. The 6000 pages of the 11 volumes contain over 2500 selections by more than 1100 authors. The country’s growth is traced—in every genre—through representative writings from the Great Awakenings, Independence, National Literature, the American Renaissance, the slavery debate, dialect writings, and the growth of the sciences, interspersed with over 1200 poems.
