dc.description.abstract Yes David, It Is was inspired by Is Literary History Possible?, a text by David Perkins that presents factors that Perkins' asserts make the writing of literary history an impossible task Yes David, It Is is a response to Perkins' work that offers solutions to these conditions. Perkins' argument is presented in summary, followed by a proposal addressing American literary history that overcomes the problems that he presents.The proposal fundamentally presents the idea that American literature, when broken down into smaller classifications and revised from one generation to the next, rather than being dealt with as a whole, is very presentable as literary history.
