In addition to addressing the lives and careers of important writers, the articles discuss the themes and a styles of major works and place them in pertinent historical, social and political concerns for today's readers. Novelists, playwrights, essayists, poets, short story writers, and more recently, genre writers in science fiction and mystery, are all expertly discussed in the more than 17 sets comprising this series. To see listings of writers for any volume in this section, go to the "Scribner Writers Series section online at www.gale.com/scribners.

Volume 1 includes essays on Toni Morrison's "Beloved," J.D. Salinger's "Catcher in the Rye," Jack Kerouac's "On the Road," Stephen Crane's "The Red Badge of Courage," John Updike's "Rabbit, Run" and others.
