Library Journal Review

The Tales of Edgar Allan Poe

Library Journal

Last fall, Salem introduced its "Critical Insights" series, which the publisher expects to complete by the end of 2010 and which currently includes titles covering individuals like Robert Frost and Ernest Hemingway and titles like Great Expectations and The Joy Luck Club. Each volume incorporates lengthy articles, endnotes, bibliographies, a detailed index with See references, a general bibliography, an author biography, and much more. Factual information appears accurate throughout, with general bibliographic resources covering 1961 through 2007. Each volume also comes with its own database-activation number, which provides free, unlimited, simultaneous online access both remotely and from the library's computers. Online editions mirror the print and may include a few additional photographs not found in the books. A reasonable acquisitions policy allows for either specific volume or full-set purchases based on a library's specific needs and budget. Bottom Line This is a valuable addition to academic libraries supporting literature students at both the undergraduate and the graduate level as it presents different views and more in-depth articles than those found in such literature series as "Bloom," "Literary Criticism," and "Contemporary Literary Criticism." [Free online access is available to those purchasing print editions through 2011.]-Laurie Selwyn, Grayson Cty. Law Lib., Sherman, TX (c) Copyright 2010.
