Description: Our Salem Literature collection contains Magill's Literary Annual and selected Critical Surveys series. To search for book reviews, scroll down and check the box for Magill?s Literary Annual to search the entire set or click in the box next to the year you are interested in searching. Each Annual critically evaluates 200 major examples of serious fiction and nonfiction literature published during the previous calendar year--novels, biographies, histories, poetry, and books on current affairs. The essay-reviews in the Annual provide a more academic, "authoritative" review of a work than is typically found in newspapers.
The Critical Surveys link provides access to the Critical Survey of Long Fiction and the Critical Survey of Poetry series, covering authors, novels, poets and poetry throughout history and the world.
