Twayne’s Authors Online series of literary criticism offers in-depth introductions to the lives and works of writers, the history and influence of literary movements, and the development of literary genres. This eBook resource features the content of nearly 900 books from six print series — U.S. Authors Series Classic, English Writers Series Classic, World Authors Series Classic, Masterwork Studies, Studies in Short Fiction, and updated editions of U.S. Authors, World Authors and English Authors. Each collection was carefully coordinated with input from librarians and educators to include authors universally studied in high schools and colleges. Because Twayne’s Authors Online is an ideal starting point for research papers on literary works and figures, special projects and presentations. Students can go directly to an entry on a specific author, combine search criteria for a more complex search, or explore thematic and chronological topics to make connections among writers.
