The American Puritans: Their Prose and Poetry

By Perry Miller | Go to book overview

A BRIEF BIBLIOGRAPHY
Because literary expression in Puritan New England was so bound up with theology and with political and ecclesiastical concerns, it can hardly be isolated from the social context. These suggestions for further study take account only of a few recent books and essays. For full listings, see Perry Miller and Thomas H. Johnson, The Puritans, for the years before 1939, and the annual bibliographies in The New England Quarterly for the years thereafter.
