Year’s Work in English Studies

The Year’s Work in English Studies is published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the English Association. Its self-description is comprehensive:

The Year’s Work in English Studies is the qualitative narrative bibliographical review of scholarly work on English language and literatures written in English. It is the largest and most comprehensive work of its kind and the oldest evaluative work of literary criticism. The Year’s Work in English Studies does not merely offer annotated or enumerated bibliography entries, but provides expert, critical commentary supplied for every book covered.

I contribute the “Native” and “General Ethnic” sections of the “American Literature: The Twentieth Century” chapter, for which I reviewed the following works first published in 2011:
