American Literary Studies


Scope of Collections
The Libraries' collections in American Literature principally support research and teaching in the Department of English and in the Programs in Comparative Literature and in Modern Thought. The collections are designed to map the evolution of American literary culture in its full historical, class, and ethnic diversity. The collections are especially strong in 20th-century materials, particularly since 1945, and offer rich documentation of literary production for a variety of audiences, from avant-garde to mass market.

The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck (first edition). New York: The Viking Press, 1939. Courtesy of the Department of Special Collections, Stanford University Libraries.

Stanford has significant holdings of Steinbeck materials, including manuscripts, notes, correspondence, photographs, and ephemera.
