Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What were people reading about as Michelangelo painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel? How did the events around the industrial revolution influence the literary output of British writers and thinkers? What are we reading now and how does it differ from what was being read 500 years ago?

The Concise Oxford Chronology of English Literature presents a comprehensive year-by-year digest of significant and representative works of literature published in English by British authors since 1474.

Synopsis:

This spectacular reference is a historic portal synchronized with the literature, by individual year, of nearly seven centuries. In its astonishing reach, the volume presents a comprehensive year-by-year digest of significant and representative works of literature published in English by British authors from 1474 to 2001. Over 15,000 works of fiction, non-fiction, drama, poetry, and literary scholarship stand as a unique record of authors, their time, and the events that influenced them. Inclusive and pluralistic in its selection of titles, the book encompasses the well known as well as important women writers; Irish, Scottish, and Welsh literature; English regional writers; and popular fiction. So now, when your insatiable mind begs for ages-old literary answers, you will know the place to turn.
