4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Captain Pugwash on 28 Mar. 2010
Format: Paperback
Literary criticism is such an extensive and a nebulous subject and the market is saturated with texts relating to it. However, if you're going to buy only one then make it this one. Recommended as part of OCR's AS English Literature course, it's clearly and concisely written and makes the understanding of Lit Crit so much more enjoyable and relevant. The price on here is reasonable, and the size and depth of the text means you definitely get value for money.

Format: Paperback
For anyone studying Literature, this book is a must-have! It's clearly written (unlike many of its counterparts),engaging and informative. You really will find it a breath of fresh air compared to many other books on the same subject. It is written in plain English and introduces new concepts in a manner that is easy to grasp. Best of all, each chapter has a very well written summary at the end, that you can use as a quick reference and reminder. This book has helped me greatly in my English Literature degree!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Robert Kenyon on 19 May 2010
Format: Paperback
This book handles some of the questions I have been asking myself for years in a very readable and relaxed way. Although I could put the book down, I was drawn back to read the next chapter through curiosity about what Eaglestone was going to say next. I particularly enjoyed the chapters relating to F.R. Leavis and Shakespeare and wished this book had been around when I studied for A level.

This book outlines many of the ideas central to the study of English Literature and how they have evolved over time. The bibliography at the end is specific to each chapter and is very useful for those thay want to read more about a specific issue. Highly reccommened!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a new mature student with the OU and not having 'studied' literature for many years this book was just about the best help I could have had. In plain, clear English you are taken through the language and terminology which is essential to study. Useful for everyone starting out in the study of this huge subject.
