A Short History of Modern English Literature
1900. Gosse's desire in writing this volume was to give the reader a feeling of the evolution of English literature in the primary sense of the term, the disentanglement of the skein, the slow and regular unwinding, down succeeding generations, of the threads of literary expression. Contents: The Age of Chaucer; The Close of the Middle Ages; The Age of Elizabeth; The Decline; The Age of Dryden; The Age of Anne; The Age of Johnson; The Age of Wordsworth; The Age of Byron; The Early Victorian Age; and The Age of Tennyson.
