A reissue of a 2009 book, “A New Literary History of America,” edited by Greil Marcus and Werner Sollors (Harvard University Press, $20 paper) includes old warhorses like Samuel Sewall, Melville and Hemingway, but also a whole passel of new subjects which would never have appeared a generation ago.
