As a result, contemporary American literature, arguably continues the pattern of highly-politicized fiction popularised in the 18th and 19th century, along with the thought-provoking philosophical questions of 20th century Modernist movement. John Updike, Harry Rabbit Angstrom series (1960, 1971, 1981, 1990).

I used this textbook in my AP Lang class my junior year of high school and honestly just missed the book so much I purchased it almost three years later. It includes so much amazing work by so many prominent essayists. I highly recommend this book.
