“PAL: Perspectives in American Literature” is a website that aims to provide information on all major American literary figures and movements from the sixteenth century to the present. Each featured writer is given their own page, which contains bibliographic citations both for their own publications, and for secondary works about them, critical and biographical. In addition, the author of this “ongoing project” provides a summary of the achievements of the featured writer, a brief biography, and in most cases a number of potential study questions. In some instances, electronic texts are included with the page, as well as lists of links to external websites likely to be of interest to students studying the author or movement in question. This comprehensive site is all keyword searchable and is well maintained and constantly updated. Indeed, this site is ideal for those students studying American authors. Teachers may also be able to derive ideas from the example study questions, although many of these are better suited to school essays than undergraduate work.
