0 Reviews
Derived from the acclaimed Cambridge Guide to Literature in English, the present volume is an A-Z reference work containing over 4,200 entries covering the full range of literature in English from around the world. The strength of the Cambridge Guide is its broad scope: It represents living and dead writers and major works from the USA, Canada, the UK, the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, India and Africa. It spans the classics to the best of modern writing, and contains a wealth of entries on literary movements, criticism, genres, terms, and even periodicals. Rather than radically sacrificing entries, in the Paperback Guide, Ian Ousby has crisply rewritten and condensed the majority to preserve the richness of the original. This affordable guide will be an indispensable reference for general readers, students and teachers alike.
