About the Author:

Edward Quinn is a professor emeritus of English at City College of New York. He holds a Ph.D. from New York University and has co-edited several reference works

From School Library Journal:

Grade 8 Up-Employing an expanded use of the word "literary," this volume includes social, theoretical, and historical terms as they relate to literature, film, television, and others forms of popular culture. In addition to the many expected terms (iamb, onomatopoeia), entries on places (Abbey Theatre), philosophical principles (the Absolute), movements (futurism), and discussions on major themes such as love and jealousy are also covered. Most of the clear, concise entries offer excellent examples of written and cinematic works that further clarify the definitions and/or titles of resources that provide additional commentary on the topics. While there is no pronunciation key for the foreign words and expressions, this valuable resource is more accessible and broader in approach than other literary dictionaries.
