From Booklist: This is a thorough revision of Facts On File’s three-volume set of the same title published in 2002. Volumes in the first edition covered the years 1607–1814, 1815–1914, and 1915 to the present. The revised edition’s four volumes cover the years 1607–1815, 1816–1895, 1896–1945, and 1946 to the present. Main entries for writers occur in the volume chronologically appropriate to the publication of their first major work. A broad view of American literature is taken throughout, especially in volume 1, which includes entries on pre-1607 explorers and writers including Columbus and Cabeza de Vaca as well as the seventeenth-century Mexican poet and playwright Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. There are approximately 1,000 new entries and “more than 300 new black-and-white illustrations” as well as revisions and additions to existing entries, according to the publisher’s press release. “The majority of the new entries are on works of literature, with a particular emphasis on those most read by high-school and college students,” it adds. Entries cover writers; major works, movements, periods, genres, and styles; periodicals and publishers; and other topics (for example, The Center for Editions of American Authors,PEN/Faulkner Award,Vietnam War). Entries range from a paragraph to, for major authors, several pages. The great majority of entries conclude with a list of sources. A minority of author entries includes a list of works, with publishers and first publication dates. Most author entries begin with a quotation. Entries on the most important writers—those most likely to be studied in high schools and universities—conclude with a guide to studying the writer’s works. A highlight is the frequent inclusion of book covers, photographic and other portraits, manuscript pages, and other illustrations. Each volume has a selected bibliography and index to that volume as well as a cumulative list of entries. Volume 4 also has a cumulative index. With entries that are well written and well researched throughout, the encyclopedia is recommended for high-school, public, and academic libraries. The four-volume Oxford Encyclopedia of American Literature (2004) achieves depth of coverage on the core authors but has only 350 essays. Well-regarded one-volume alternatives, although not as up-to-date, include Benét’s Reader’s Encyclopedia of American Literature  (4th ed., 1996) and The Oxford Companion to American Literature (6th ed., 1995). --Craig Bunch
