A well-established bestseller, this indispensable, compact guide to all aspects of English literature has been fully revised and updated for the third edition. It covers world fiction, historical context, writers, works, literary theory, allusions, characters, and plot summaries. New, analytical feature entries supply a wealth of information about key genres in literature, including short stories and metre. New entries on modern authors such as Jim Crace and Ben Elton have been added, alongside new entries on topics such as travel writing and Anglo-Indian literature. Expanded coverage of world authors includes notable authors in translation, new authors and titles.

Based on the best-selling Oxford Companion to English Literature, this classic reference work was written originally by a team of more than 140 distinguished contributors headed by Margaret Drabble. It is the essential reference source for English students, teachers, and all other readers of literature in English.
