Overview

In The Oxford Chronology of English Literature, an extensive, carefully selected checklist of significant and representative works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry, drama, and literary scholarship from 1475 to 2000 is represented. This unique 2-volume set contains a generous sampling of nearly 30,000 works from more than 4,000 authors.
The works within the Chronology are arranged by year of imprint or by actual publication where this differs, allowing readers to access information on printed publications in relation to other works published in the same year or in a sequence of years. The format of each title record enables users to quickly and easily check such specifics as subtitles of works; format (i.e. number of volumes); publisher/imprint details; place of publication; whether a work was published anonymously or pseudonymously; serialization details; where and when dramatic works were first performed; whether or not a work was illustrated and by whom.
In many entries, additional annotation is provided, especially where this is relevant to an understanding of a work's composition or publishing history. Careful attention has also been paid to women and Irish, Scottish, and Welsh authors who wrote/write in English, to English regional writers, and working-class texts. And the Chronology has broadened the definition of literature to include a large number of works whose popularity serves to exemplify contemporary taste or which have contributed to the development of a particular popular genre, such as detective fiction.
The Oxford Chronology of English Literature provides a wide range of readers—from scholars and students to librarians and book collectors—with an exciting, unique, and comprehensive resource on over 500 years of literature.
