Native Americans have produced some of the most powerful and lyrical literature ever written in North America. This volume examines some of the finest Native American writers, including Joy Harjo, Louise Erdrich, James Welch, Sherman Alexie, N. Scott Momaday, Samsom Occom, Zitkala-Sa, and Leslie Marmon Silko. Yale literature professor Harold Bloom introduces this new edition, which also features a bibliography, a chronology, and an index for easy reference. This title in the ""Bloom's Modern Critical Views"" series presents a well-rounded critical portrait of an influential group of writers by examining their body of work through eight to 12 full-length essays.
Harold Bloom is Sterling Professor of Humanities, Yale University, and Henry W. and Albert A. Berg Professor of English, New York University Graduate School
