The acclaimed Twayne's Authors Series of literary criticism offers in-depth introductions to the lives and works of writers, the history and influence of literary movements and to the development of literary genres. This online series features the content of more than 600 books that comprise three print series --United States Authors, English Authors and World Authors -- each of which were carefully coordinated with input from librarians and educators to include authors universally studied in high schools and colleges. Twayne's Author Series is an ideal starting point for research papers on literary works and figures, special projects and presentations. Students can quickly gain results by searching for a specific author, combining search criteria for a more complex search, or exploring thematic and chronological topics.
