The Midwest has produced a robust literary heritage. Its authors have won half of the nation's Nobel Prizes for Literature plus a significant number of Pulitzer Prizes. This volume explores the rich racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity of the region. It also contains entries on 35 pivotal Midwestern literary works, literary genres, literary, cultural, historical, and social movements, state and city literatures, literary journals and magazines, as well as entries on science fiction, film, comic strips, graphic novels, and environmental writing. Prepared by a team of scholars, this second volume of the Dictionary of Midwestern Literature is a comprehensive resource that demonstrates the Midwest's continuing cultural vitality and the stature and distinctiveness of its literature.

The Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature celebrates the lives and mourns the loss of D AVID D( ANIEL ) A NDERSON (1924-2011) and Patricia Ann Rittenhour Anderson (1930-2006), editorial board members for this volume as well as for volume 1 of the Dictionary of Midwestern Literature . David Anderson was a pioneer of Midwestern literary study, the founder of the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature, a University Distinguished Professor at Michigan State University, and a prolific literary critic, theoretician, and creative writer. He was the inspiration for the Dictionary of Midwestern Literature series. Patricia Anderson, his wife of fifty-three years, was a Lansing, Michigan school librarian, a devotee of children s literature, and an active partner in David s literary study. Together, Patricia and David set the tone and created the friendly, encouraging, and generous atmosphere that have marked the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature since its inception. This volume is dedicated to the memory of David and Patricia Anderson.

Many people and entities contributed significant time, effort, expertise, encouragement, and financial support to making this volume a reality.
David D. Anderson and the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature (SSML) provided the impetus for this volume and the Dictionary of Midwestern Literature series. Roger Bresnahan and the SSML Corporate Board set the priorities and provided financial resources. Marcia Noe, Robert Beasecker, and Loren Logsdon supplemented SSML funds with personal contributions, as did the estate of David D. Anderson. Partial funding for indexing this volume was provided by the Ohio University College of Arts and Sciences Humanities Research Fund.
The Editorial Board, originally David D. Anderson, Patricia Anderson, Marilyn Judith Atlas, William Barillas, Robert Beasecker, Robert Dunne, Philip Greasley, Sara Kosiba, Marcia Noe, David Newquist, Mary DeJong Obuchowski, Guy Szuberla, and Joseph Wydeven, provided strong guidance and important service as writers and editors. We regret that David and Patricia Anderson and Joseph Wydeven did not live to celebrate completion of this volume. Pressing commitments forced longtime board members Guy Szuberla and David Newquist to relinquish their positions, but their contributions remain significant and much appreciated.
Nearly one hundred literary scholars, librarians, teachers, and community members from across the United States and abroad contributed entries. The pages of this volume reflect their enthusiasm, varied perspectives, and wide-ranging expertise.
William Barillas and Robert Beasecker gave hundreds of additional hours to working with me in locating and securing permission to reprint the many images gracing this volume.
Karen Greasley, a graphic designer, began helping me, her father, by creating the maps and improving the images appearing throughout this volume. The Editorial Board recognized the quality and importance of her contributions by formally designating her as Art Editor.
Ashley Hopkins and Lauren Brown Shepherd advanced the volume through their work as Assistant Editors.
The University of Kentucky encouraged creation of the Dictionary of Midwestern Literature series and this volume and allowed my UK staff to support my work over many years. Grand Valley State University Libraries, Special Collections, and Robert Beasecker, Director of Special Collections and University Archives, provided invaluable assistance in suggesting and providing images of significant Midwestern works to accompany this volume. University of Kentucky Libraries Dean Terry Birdwhistell and Special Collections Director Gordon Hogg also made their collections available in support of this effort.
Sarah Jacobi and Nazareth Pantaloni III at Indiana University Press provided wise counsel and answered innumerable questions as we brought this volume to completion.
Finally, the families and friends of the team creating this volume supported and encouraged our work for more than a decade. This comprehensive study of the literature and culture of the Midwest remains deeply indebted to them and to all who fostered our efforts.
