Founded in 1911 when Yale College graduate Owen Franklin Aldis donated his distinguished library of first editions of American fiction, drama, and poetry to the Yale Library, the Collection of American Literature is one of the most important collections of its kind. "Multidues" demonstrates the collection’s extraordinary richness, eclecticism, and depth. From the colonial period to the present, it celebrates American literature as a living art form with a complex history.
