Overview

A Brief History of English Literature by John Peck, Martin Coyle

John Peck and Martin Coyle's new book is a different kind of history, providing a dynamic analysis of the story of English literature. Focusing on how poems, novels, plays and other forms of writing both reflect and challenge the periods in which they were produced, it combines close readings of selected key texts with recent critical thinking on the interaction of literary works and culture. A Brief History of English Literature is a must-have guide which offers a lively and concise historical overview of English literature from the Anglo-Saxon period to the present day -- a true masterpiece of clarity and compression!
