Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 9^-12. Intended as "comprehensive research and study guides" to the best of each author's works, books in Bloom's Major Novelists series offer biographical, critical, and bibliographical information on novels considered classics. In these volumes, the biographical information is brief, but it provides insight into the personal backgrounds and philosophical leanings of each writer. Sections designated "Plot Summary" are a bit misleading as they contain more commentary than story summation; character descriptions are expertly done in Fitzgerald but only adequate in Faulkner. Not surprisingly, the strongest sections are the analyses. Encapsulations of major critical essays (usually two pages each) cover important themes that students need to understand to appreciate the works. The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night are successfully covered in the Fitzgerald volume; coverage is not as thorough in Faulkner as it deals with more works--Light in August, The Sound and the Fury, and, especially, Absalom, Absalom! Each volume ends with a list of works by and about the author. --Roger Leslie"
