Format: Paperback
This book is an accessible, clear and accurate reference book which is a MUST for anyone studying English, or for anyone who always wanted to understand exactly what is meant by the term 'onomatopoeic'. I am at degree level English now, and have always felt stupid asking for definitions of technical words, or to have things explained to me, and this book has become my bible! And as the saying goes, I'll bet there's many of you out there who still don't quite grasp exactly what a sonnet involves, or who still pretend to understand the terms 'sibilance' and 'iambic pentameter', and daren't ask! Now there's no need, because this bok hold the key to all your terminology nightmares. It's a very useful book, and is by no means full of jargon. Whether you're at degree level, GCSE level; or just want to know more, this book is an essential and very good read!

Format: Paperback
I got this book as a result of attending a Creative Writing class on writing practice. It explains, in clear terms, several literary terms which are often thrown at you during study at university but never fully explained. Most useful as a reference book, I recommend it to anyone who is thinking of taking up a career in writing or who has an interest in literature.

Format: Paperback
On being accepted into uni to study for a BA in English I was presented with a reading list as long as my arm. All the money I had earnt working that summer went straight on all the books which the course handbook told me I ABSOLUTLY COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT. I am now at the end of my second year and most of these books are still sitting on the shelf wrapped in their original cellophane. This glossary has however been invaluable! It is very simple to use, all presented in alphabetical order so when u have an essay due in at 9am the next morning you don't lose precious time flipping through random sections, and the language is not such that you would need a dictionary to decipher it. As it is recommended by the uni's themselves you can easily get credit in an essay quoting from it, thus it is a handy way to pad out your bibliography! Joking aside it is a very useful resource and I would highly recommend for all students from GCSE to degree.
