Over 60 of America's most important authors

Presented by Jane Kaczmarek. The rich, literary tradition of American storytelling has been an incredible journey of finding the nation’s voice, beginning with the first colonists in the 17th century to a small cadre of brilliant, 19th-century, New England writers who defined the unique American experience and soul, to the whole country speaking out in the 20th century against war, poverty, racism, and alienation. Featuring such greats as Poe, Dickinson, Twain, Alcott, Hemingway, Wolfe, Steinbeck, Vonnegut, and Morrison, this eight-part series presents the lives and literary output of over 60 of America’s most important authors. The chronological chapters put each author in context and concentrate on the influence of their literary works. Grades 7 and up. Closed captioned. Spanish subtitles selectable. Total time: 240 minutes. Ambrose.
