From the description of Typed letter signed : Westport, Ct., to Stark Young, 1937 Apr. 10. (Unknown). WorldCat record id: 270874884

Van Wyck Brooks was an author and educator, known for his study of, and influence on, American culture. After graduating from Harvard, he sought a literary career in New York and London, writing chiefly for magazines. While teaching at Stanford he developed his first books of criticism, leading up to his first significant success, America's Coming-of-Age. His subsequent attempts to analyze, and later direct, American culture were both erudite and popular, and he became one of the most popular authors of his time, an extraordinary achievement for a writer of scholarly non-fiction. He also wrote biography and history, and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for The Flowering of New England.

American literary critic.

From the description of Van Wyck Brooks papers, 1934-1963. (Columbia University In the City of New York). WorldCat record id: 470399970

Van Wyck Brooks was an important American literary and social critic and commentator. His initial thesis, that American culture was pervaded by Puritan materialism to the detriment of artistic development, gradually gave way to an appreciation of the American literary tradition. His analysis of specific authors continues to be a rich and valuable source of thought, observation, and American literary potential.
