From the Publisher"Like the others in this set, this volume provides a comprehensive survey of authors and literary genres by focusing on a narrative account of what a variety of individual scholars regard as the most signifiacnt features of their subjects."
-American Reference Books Annual
"In briefly reflecting on a volume as compendious as this one it is needless to say how much of interest and value it contains that I haven't been able even to allude to. The centurial significance of the Cambridge History of English Literature, 1660—1780, its status as the first of its kind since George Saintsbury and his Peace of the Augustans, only furthers the importance of Richetti's collection."
-Michael McKeon, SEL-Studies in English Literature
"This volume succeeds in representing the variety of texts between 1660 and 1780 that are studied as English literature, and simultaneously gives a lively sense of the debates, both in the period represented and in current criticism and scholarship, about the boundaries and the purpose of the category of literature....The volume is reliable and stimulating. It will have a long life as a work of reference, and is an excellent indication of the current state of the subject."
