A great read, stuffed with fine pieces and quotations. Best understood if read alongside Fuinnegan's'Why do we quote?' and the Oxforf Dictionary of Quotations

I was more surprised by the omissions than the inclusions, some of the greatest genre writers are missing from this and it is heavy biased towards a male view of literary fictions

I've had a previous version of this excellent book for quite some time and have always found it most useful in all sorts of ways. I've now bought the latest edition for my grand-daughter who is presently studying an open university degree course and I am sure that she will find it useful too.

This is probably the best publication of its type in use for those studying for the degree in English Literature.
But to anyone interested in the form of the language, as written or translated of prose and poetry, this is the perfect book to hand. The references often go into such detail and background of the author and the substance of the titles that the historical context of a publication of that period is provided.

I bought this most recent version of "The Oxford Companion to English Literature" as my Mum had an earlier version from the 1980's, and it was well used.

I am glad I purchased it, as it is easy to use, with new sections and is up to date. A very useful book for anyone with an interest in English Literature and related subjects.
