The Harlem Renaissance was a broad movement of the 1920s and 30s in America which involved all genres of the arts in a vivid spurt of creative growth, and charting the literary movement's works and major players is ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE HARLEM LITERARY RENAISSANCE: THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE TO THE LIVES AND WORKS OF THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE WRITERS. Over six hundred A-Z entries detail the history of the movement and explain how the writer and their works helped influence and change the face of American literary achievement. From historical studies to literary criticism, primary source materials and quotes throughout make the ENCYCLOPEDIA an important mainstay for either high school or college-level literary holdings.
