Two important, very different references are recommended college-level picks. New to the 'Exploring Social Issues Through Literature' series is Charles E. Wilson Jr.'s RACE AND RACISM IN LITERATURE (031332820X, $49.95), examining major writings which have addressed race issues, from Native Son and The Chosen to House on Mango Street. The focus on selected novels allows for not just plot summaries and critical commentary, but for a review of the book's history and analysis of how racism is portrayed. THE EZRA POUND ENCYCLOPEDIA by Demetres P. Tryphonopoulos and Stephen J. Adams (0313304483, $125.00) is a recommended pick for specialty college collections: Pound's work changed the course of poetry and made him one of the 20th century's greatest writers, and here are hundreds of A-Z entries referencing his works, influences, and interests. About a hundred expert contributors provide entries perfect for quick reference, many quite detailed and lengthy, which will also lend to student papers.
