Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A beautiful book! I'll definitely recommend it to students."--Carolyn Woodward, Univ. of New Mexico

"An impressive volume. The illustrations alone would make it so. Paintings, woodcuts, photographs, engravings, cartoons, and manuscripts have been chosen by the contributors as especially revealing of the concerns of the different eras. Portraits bring the authors to life. Even the captions are pithy little essays, making the most casual examination of the book a rewarding experience. For the serious student, this reference is a must."--Kliatt

"A compact and very useful overview that I intend to have all my students own."--Robert Dupree, University of Dallas

"Dexterous but not cursory, learned without being pedantic or sluggish, the authorities who've put their heads together here highlight exemplary works that have impressed and moved readers and that have contributed significantly to the phenomenally brilliant body of English literature. This large book is helpful as a reference, but it also reads fluidly from cover to cover. Quite engagingly illustrated."--Booklist

"This is a book of discoveries."--The Christian Science Monitor
