9780300205312: A Little History of Literature
Review:

'As a guidebook, it's a cracker. What Sutherland has to offer is formidable breadth of reading, a generous spirit and a rebounding enthusiasm for his subject.'-Sam Leith, Spectator -- Sam Leith Spectator 'Written in prose that is clear and free from the diktat of theory and criticism, A Little History of Literature is an enjoyable account of a lifelong involvement with literature.'-John Vukmirovich, Times Literary Supplement -- John Vukmirovich Times Literary Supplement 'I suspect that an expert like John Sutherland could have written this highly entertaining and informative history without recourse to any research at all, having it pretty much at his fingertips; and it reads extremely well, as though he is simply having a chat with us about literature and why it matters.'-Lesley McDowell, Independent on Sunday -- Lesley McDowell Independent on Sunday 'A Little History of Literature, which begins with Beowulf and ends with bestsellers, is primarily a guide for teenagers, and John Sutherland brings to the vast and unruly subject some order, clarity and commonsense.'-Frances Wilson, New Statesman -- Frances Wilson New Statesman Visit the Little History website. http://littlehistory.org "A genial, enthusiastic guide leads a jaunt through literary history... [Sutherland's] aim is not to draw a line between high art and low, but to share his prodigious joy of reading."-Kirkus Reviews Kirkus Reviews Praise for John Sutherland: 'John Sutherland is among the handful of critics whose every book I must have. He's sharp-eyed and sharp-tongued, with a generous heart and a wise head.'-Jay Parini -- Jay Parini "This slim book makes for a necessarily cursory review of literature's greats - and the loving treatment by an expert ... will please both novices and established readers looking to dip back into well-loved works."-Shelf Awareness Shelf Awareness

"'As a guidebook, it's a cracker. What Sutherland has to offer is formidable breadth of reading, a generous spirit and a resounding enthusiasm for his subject.' (Sam Leith, Spectator) 'Written in prose that is clear and free from the diktat of theory and criticism, A Little History of Literature is an enjoyable account of a lifelong involvement with literature.' (John Vukmirovich, Times Literary Supplement) 'A Little History of Literature, which begins with Beowulf and ends with bestsellers, is primarily a guide for teenagers, and John Sutherland brings to the vast and unruly subject some order, clarity and commonsense.' (Frances Wilson, New Statesman)"

Descripción Yale University Press, United States, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 212 x 138 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This little history takes on a very big subject: the glorious span of literature from Greek myth to graphic novels, from The Canterbury Tales to Harry Potter. John Sutherland is perfectly suited to the task. He has researched, taught and written on virtually every area of literature, and his infectious passion for books and reading has defined his own life. Now he guides young readers and the grown-ups in their lives on an entertaining journey through the wardrobe to a greater awareness of how literature can transport us and help us to make sense of what it means to be human. Sutherland introduces great classics in his own irresistible way, enlivening his offerings with humour as well as learning: Beowulf, Shakespeare, the Romantics, Dickens, Moby Dick, The Waste Land, Woolf, Nineteen Eighty-Four, and dozens of others. He adds to these a less-expected, personal selection of authors and works, including literary works usually considered well below serious attention - from the rude jests of Anglo-Saxon runes to The Da Vinci Code. With masterful digressions into various themes - censorship, narrative tricks, self-publishing, taste, creativity and madness - Sutherland demonstrates the full depth and intrigue of reading. For younger readers, he offers a proper introduction to literature, promising to interest as much as instruct. For more experienced readers, he promises just the same.
