Product description


"Good coverage from the classical to the contemporary."--David G. Hale, State University of New York at Brockport"Clearly and concisely written. It is the most up-to-date and comprehensive of such 'concise' handbooks."--Robert W. Lewis, University of North Dakota"Of the many recent dictionaries of literary terms, Baldick's is the one most likely to satisfy today's student....The explanations are clear and succinct, and often employ illustrative examples."--Library Journal (in a starred review)"This is an excellent "pocket-sized" reference paperback at a reasonable price."--Dr. Robert C. Rice, Christendom College"This is just what our English majors need. It's up to date, to the point, and inexpensive."--Preston Harper, Albilene Christian University"Excellent, one of the best on the market, level just right for undergraduates."--Sabine Gross, University of Wisconsin/Madison
