American Literature: Home


The WVWC Department of English supports the belief that "literature and writing should be an integral part of every student's program."  Literature and language courses, both for English majors and as part of the general education curriculum, seek to encourage students toward a deeper appreciate for language and literature.  This guide will help students to navigate available resources for the study of British literature.  Resources are also available for the study of American literature.
