Every fourth volume in the distinguished series (cited in major reference works for selectors) is devoted to literary topics that cannot be covered under the author approach used in the rest of the series. Six chapters, each about 75 pages, present representative works, overviews, history and significance, themes and techniques, further reading, and other discussion specific to the topics under consideration: Arthurian revival, detective fiction, European Romanticism, naturalism, and yellow journalism. The volume culminates with cumulative author, topic, and nationality indexes to the 13 different literary criticism sources from Gale. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
