Overview

The Nineteenth-Century History of English Studies collects together many of the original texts from the long-running debate which surrounded the rise of English as an academic subject. Most of the texts were ephemeral and have been long out of print, but they are essential to an understanding of how English studies developed. They show how English was influenced by pre-existing subjects like rhetoric and classics, and how it assumed different faces in different academic institutions. This study will appeal to teachers and students of English and the history of education and to all those interested in these aspects of the nineteenth century.
