Product description


'A marvellously compact, all round guide to English, written primarily with the undergraduate in mind but suitable for everyone with an interest in the language. Seriously academic textbooks rarely make for interesting, accessible reading for the rest of us, but this is one very welcome exception.' - Writing Maga zine

'Useful to teachers as a handbook to the changing nature of English Literature, and a source of classroom activities' - English and Media Magazine


Designed to support students and teachers working across the range of language, literature and culture, The English Studies Book combines the functions of study guide, critical dictionary and text anthology. This second edition takes full account of current changes in the subject while maintaining the authority, accessibility and flexibility of the first edition. Revised and updated throughout, features include: a prologue addressing changes in English Studies today entries on over 100 critical and theoretical terms, including 'creative writing', 'travel writing' and 'translation' practical introductions to the major theoretical approaches, with new sections on Aesthetics, Ethics, Ecology and Sexuality an anthology of literary and related texts from Anglo-Saxon to Afro-Caribbean, with fresh selections on the sonnet, haiku, slave narratives and science fiction, and additional texts by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Charles Darwin, Ian McEwan, Margaret Atwood, Amy Tan and others handy frameworks and checklists for close reading, research, essay writing and other textual activities, including use of the Internet.
