Synopsis

The Facts on File Companion to the British Novel by Mary Virginia Brackett

An invaluable collection of encyclopedias analyzing individual literary genres, the Companion to Literature series focuses on drama, short stories, novels, and poetry as they are studied in high school and college curricula. Concentrating on the main authors, works, and movements that comprise each genre, the books also include minor authors and works. Beginning with an introduction discussing the genre and its significance, each A-to-Z encyclopedia contains hundreds of clearly written entries on authors, literary works and terms, themes, historical places, and more. The books are defined by geography and by time period, such as 20th-century poetry or classical drama. Covering everything one needs to know about these important genres, this new series is a perfect companion to any literature course.
