NOTAS:

Obra escrita em língua inglesa.
The Short Oxford History of English Literature provides in a single volume a comprehensive introductory guide to the literature of the British Isles from the Anglo-Saxon period to the present day.
Separate chapters trace the development of English literature from Beowulf to the 'post-modernism' of Seamus Heaney and Angela Carter. The History provides detailed discussion of Old and Middle English literature, the Renaissance, Shakespeare, the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the Romantics, Victorian and Edwardian literature, Modernism, and post-war writing. Discussions of key writers and works from Anselm and Chaucero Spenser and Bunyan, and from Swift and Johnson to Dickens and D. H. Lawrence, are combined with analysis of the impact on literature of contemporary political, social, and intellectual developments. The History looks again at the canon of English Literature and provides a fresh assessment of the distinctive contribution of Scottish, Irish, and Welsh writers. And it asks about the future of the canon in the light of the fragmented condition of British writing in the post-imperial period.
Lively, accessible, and up to date, The Short Oxford History of English Literature will be an invaluable source for all readers and students of English literature. Andrew Sanders is a Reader in Modern English Literature at Birkbeck College, University of London.
