Overview

Featuring entries on c.600 British writers—with those of the 16th and 17th centuries in v.1 and the 18th century in v.2—this reference provides an excellent introduction to a wide range of authors, their works, and times for the high school and beginning undergraduate student. Entries on influential non-British writers are also included. Each volume begins with an historical introduction highlighting key events and issues of the era, written by Gregory M. Colon Semenza (English, U. of Connecticut) and Hagar (English, State U. of New York, Cortland). Each volume also contains a separate, thorough index, author's timeline, and a selected bibliography. The entries contain the writer's dates, a brief biography, discussion of their work, and frequently, an excerpt of their writings. For the more well-known writers, a section is included of critical analysis of their chief works. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
