'Studying English Literature contains literary and social history and a glossary of terms, balances thoughtful generalizations with careful case studies, and explains how best to use literary theory and secondary criticism (and how not to use it). This excellent guide will be consulted often by undergraduates studying literature, if they are wise.'
- Merritt Moseley, Professor of Literature and Language, The University of North Carolina at Asheville, USA
'This is an excellent introduction to studying English at university. It encourages students to be active, independent learners, helping them to develop the close reading and critical thinking skills necessary for a successful English degree. It's written in a fun, easy-to-follow style, with up-to-date suggestions for ways of understanding different literary periods and much helpful advice.'
- Professor Sharon Ruston, Chair in Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture, University of Salford, UK

Top Customer Reviews
-The book contains a history of English literature, which is like an extensive timeline, but this history only begins at the Renaissance. What about Medieval Literature? Why is that left out? You can't pick and choose which periods you want to include if you're claiming to provide a historical framework of ideas.
-The sections on the Romantic and Victorian Period are far too vague.
The book simply tries to do far too much and, as a result, most of the content is vague and unhelpful. One could easily find better information available on wikipedia or other websites.
