5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful and Clear Critique, 13 Mar 2010

This review is from: Ian McEwan's "Enduring Love" (Routledge Guides to Literature) (Paperback)
Having been teaching 'Enduring Love' to A Level students, I bought this guide in order to provide the students and me with secondary resources to support our reading of the novel. Due to 'Enduring Love' being such a recent publication, there is a distinct scarcity of useful secondary reading that the 'Average Jo(e)' can lay their hands upon!

As well as containing useful explanations relating to the various contexts that underpin the novel, this guide contains a selection of critical essays that tap into some of the many themes and ideas that the novel engages with.

Though some of the critique is, in my opinion, a little far fetched (see the discussion relating to Jed being Joe's alter-ego and his escape route from Clarissa and his associated anxieties about love), there is much in this publication that will help to shed light on what is a rather enigmatic novel.

I think that this guide would be well-suited to both A Level students and those studying at undergraduate level. For A Level students the critical essays will prove fairly hardgoing if being read independently but they will certainly provide an excellent stimulus for class discussion.

This review is from: Ian McEwan's "Enduring Love" (Routledge Guides to Literature) (Paperback)
This book is good for critics and helped me a lot during A Level English Literature. Worth recommending no matter how much i hated reading Enduring Love. This book allows you to understand it more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for AS level students, 3 Dec 2012

This review is from: Ian McEwan's "Enduring Love" (Routledge Guides to Literature) (Paperback)
I bought this for my daughter as she is studying Enduring Love for AS level next year. She was unable to find any critical essays elsewhere, but this book has plenty to provide quotes and points of view for her coursework essay. Her teacher agrees it is the book to have if you want to get a good grade for this book, and as such, I thought it was worth the price.

This review is from: Ian McEwan's "Enduring Love" (Routledge Guides to Literature) (Paperback)
This is a VERY insightful and detailed guide/analysis into Enduring Love. It invites understanding into many scientific reasons as to why the characters reacted in certain ways.
