 American Literature
It is both reflection and representation of past and present: from exploration and discovery to settlement and colonization; from rebellion and independence to growth and maturity; from slavery and abolitionism to civil war and restoration; from expansion and industrial­ization to immigration and naturalization; from world war and recovery to nuclear capabil­ity and global diplomacy.
It is the study of a literature maturing from its infancy in colonial America to a literature in the twentieth century of international importance.
American literature is by nature a literature that reflects the multiplicity of a people united by a common bond and diversified by region, ethnicity, religion, social and economic status, political conviction, and cultural identity.

It endeavours to produce its effects by a sort of mathematical method; it may be said to extract the square root of the complex phenomena of reality, and build with those abstractions a new world on an enormously magnified scale.
O'Neill's dramatic production has been extraordinarily comprehensive in scope, versatile in character, and abundantly fruitful in new departures; and still its originator is at a stage of vigorous development.
