This comprehensive reference includes thousands of characters that have appeared in the works of Agatha Christie, William Golding, James Joyce, D.H. Lawrence, Evelyn Waugh, and many others.
Book News Annotation:
The second volume of a splendid two-volume compendium (the first, 19th and 20th Century Novels, was reviewed in the August 1993 R&R Book News) representing over a thousand novels and some 20,000 characters. Volume two covers novelists who published the bulk of their work after 1900 and includes some novels published in the contemporary period. In all, it includes 686 novels and some 10,000 characters. Like its companion volume, each entry identifies the work in which the character appeared, the character's role in the novel, and the character's significance to the work.
