Publisher Comments:

"Reader's Guides are not encyclopedias or dictionaries; they are guides to reading in particular subject. Their aim is to evaluate the secondary material in a broad area of study by means of comparative essays on hundreds of specific topics. "Reader's Guide Literature "in EnglishN provides expert guidance to, and critical analysis of, the vast number of books available within the subject of English literature, from Anglo-Saxon times to the current American, British and Commonwealth scene. It is designed to help students, teachers and librarians choose "the most appropriate books for research and study. <BR>Each entry in the Reader's Guide to Literature in English identifies a particular subject--for example, Charles Dickens- then lists those books generally considered to be the most important on that subject, followed by an essay--more than 600 in all, written by 300 scholars and critics of English literature--provide the reader with advice on the quality, emphasis, range and depth of coverage, and point of view, of each book listed. <BR>This survey of secondary sources in English literature is now widely regarded as the most authoritative text in its field, indispensable in academic, public, and high school libraries.

Book News Annotation:

An authoritative guide to critical work written on specific writers, and in broader literary categories as well. Entries begin with the general and proceed to the specific, covering all genres in English speaking countries. Individual writers were selected for inclusion based on the volume of criticism attached to their work and also for the continued interest shown. In order to maintain inclusiveness, less closely studied artists are often included in general categories e.g. "Renaissance Women Writers." The individual selections provide a listing of seminal critical work and brief critical description of each. Thematic list, booklist and general indexes make information readily accessible.
