The Concise Oxford Chronology of English Literature presents a comprehensive year-by-year digest of 15,000 significant and representative works of literature published in English by British authors from 1474 to the present day. The greats sit alongside long forgotten gems, the trivial, the inspirational, and the unusual, all equally worthy of remembrance. An ideal resource for students and academics of English literature. The main chronology is supplemented by three indexes.
An author index allows readers to view the literary output of any given author in chronological order, an index of periodicals gives a short overview of periodicals published during the period covered, and there is also an index of anonymous titles. This edition has been updated to include works of literature from 2002 and 2003.
"Review from previous edition Here's a treasure trove for the bookish on a birthday."
Godfrey Smith, Sunday Times
"The Chronology could hardly be done better."
Edward Neill, Times Higher Education Supplement
