Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The fact that you can look up a term like 'ballad' and find out the history of ballads in English very concisely and then get suggestions of key works to read to expand your knowledge is what makes this book exceptional."

"This book is absolutely unique because of the lucid essays found throughout - essays which are ambitiously comprehensive, yet succinct. I've been looking at handbooks of literary terms for several decades but have yet to find an equal to the Glossary."
