Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Offering an introduction to British literature challenging traditional eighteenth-century and Romantic studies, this Companion explores the development of literary genres and modes in a period of rapid change. Its contributors demonstrate how literature was influenced by such historical factors as the development of the book trade, the rise of literary criticism and the expansion of commercial society and empire. Linking established authors with those gaining new attention from scholars, the collection's broad scope makes it essential reading for students of eighteenth-century literature and Romanticism.

Synopsis:

The Teacher's Grammar of English is a comprehensive resource text designed to help ESL/EFL teachers and teachers-in-training develop an understanding of English grammar.
