Dictionary of Native American Literature by Andrew Wiget

Dictionary of Native American Literature by Andrew Wiget
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.7MB
Overview: In 1969, when N. Scott Momaday received the Pulitzer Prize for his House Made of Dawn, academics searching for new worlds to explore turned their eyes to the virgin territory of Native American literature. Since that time they have struggled to apply Euro-American techniques of literary criticism as they have grappled with issues of authenticity, authorship, and oral versus written literature.

This book, edited by Wiget of New Mexico State University with the help of an advisory board, contains more than 70 essays by 52 members of the Association for the Study of American Indian Literatures. Do not be misled by the title–entries are not alphabetically arranged. Instead, scholarly essays are arranged by historical period: Native American oral literature, Indian writing to 1967, and from 1967 to the present. Each of the sections begins with an introductory essay by an advisory board member. The signed articles that follow, by scholars from the fields of anthropology, folklore, literature, and Native American studies, are readable and well researched. Each contains a helpful bibliography of primary and secondary sources. A single index combines subjects, authors, and titles.
