A very uselful study guide for those studying the novel at A-Level. This book contains:
~ Summaries with detailed commentaries; with extended commentary on extended passages.
~ Discussion of themes and literary techniques
~ Author biography
~ Historical and literary background
~ Chronology of important events
~ Self test questions
This book offers an introduction to more sophisticated analysis, a range of critical perspectives and wider contexts.
