Palmer has put together an interesting little volume loosely covering a history of literature. This is not an overly academic volume, it is much more "fun" reading. Typical format in a chapter discusses the history of a literature type (epic poem, novel, gothic, romance, sci-fi, etc), includes references to important authors and works, and then includes lots of trivia and miscellaneous facts. Although I would not recommend reading this volume for the academic research - Palmer has included a great selected bibliography that may be well worth the price of this volume!
