9780199608218: The Concise Oxford Companion to English Literature (Oxford Quick Reference)

Based on the bestselling Oxford Companion to English Literature, this is an indispensable, compact guide to all aspects of English literature. Over 5,500 new and revised alphabetical entries give unrivaled coverage of writers, works, historical context, literary theory, allusions, characters, and plot summaries. The entries range from brief identifications of fictional characters to fascinating and informative articles that cover such topics as major authors, key literary works, and major genres in fiction, including science fiction, fantasy, biography, and crime fiction.

For this fourth edition, the dictionary has been fully revised and updated to include expanded coverage of postcolonial, African, black British, and children's literature, as well as improved representation in the areas of science fiction, biography, travel literature, women's writing, gay and lesbian writing, and American literature. The appendices listing literary prize winners--including the Nobel, Man Booker, and Pulitzer prizes--have all been updated and there is also a timeline, chronicling the development of English literature from c. 1000 to the present day. Many entries feature recommended web links, which are listed and regularly updated on a dedicated companion website.

Written originally by a team of more than 140 distinguished authors and extensively updated for this new edition, this book provides an essential point of reference for English students, teachers, and all other readers of literature in English.

Review:


Praise for previous editions:


"Beautifully organized, replete with valuable information, and small enough to be easily handled, this inexpensive paperback volume is an ideal reference book."
--Charlotte Lindgren, American Reference Books Annual


"This is a scrupulously produced, smartly laid-out, academically serious and at the same time relishably browsable book."
--Henry Hitchings, The Times Literary Supplement


"It offers companionable assistance; it's your pal in literary need."
--John Sutherland, Sunday Times


"No guide could come more classic than The Oxford Companion to English Literature...the literary reference source of first resort...indispensable."
--Malcolm Bradbury, The Times
