Contemporary Literary Criticism

Contemporary Literary Criticism covers selected novelists, poets, critics, dramatists, short story writers, and other creative writers now living or who died after 1959. Each entry contains a short biography, critical introduction, and excerpts from essays and book reviews taken from books, magazines, literary reviews, newspapers, and scholarly journals, and, if available, interviews with the author.

This electronic version includes entries from the print version of CLC from Vol. 95 (1997) as well as approximately 500 retrospective authors revised from the series' earlier volumes.
