Editorial Reviews

The Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature can be proud of the herculean effort that produced this comprehensive survey of regional literature. They set out to demonstrate that the Midwest is neither homogeneous nor static nor culturally backward. With Dimensions of the Midwestern Literary Imagination, they have undoubtedly succeeded.
