Editorial Reviews

"Brought fully up-to-date with a chapter on twenty-first developments, and featuring a number of useful and exciting extras such as an extensive companion website, this third edition of the widely acclaimed Routledge History of Literature in English fully confirms its reputation of solid yet accessible scholarship, and as the indispensable first-hand reference for any serious student of literature in English." Theo D¿haen, University of Leuven, Belgium "Immensely accessible, comprehensive and reader-friendly, the 3rd edition of The Routledge History of Literature in English provides interested readers with a thorough exploration of British and Irish literature. With a new added chapter chronicling writings from the twenty-first century, this ideal volume is¿to date¿unique, unrivalled." Suriyan Panlay, Thammasat University, Thailand "The third edition of this extensive and clearly written volume will be welcome to readers keen to historicize the development of English from Caedmon¿s Hymn to the writing of Kazuo Ishiguro. By assessing the reach of English both globally and within the shifting landscape of the British Isles, the authors address questions of dialect, regionalism and nationhood alongside those of genre, form, lexicon and aesthetics. The focus on social and political context in conversation with close readings of specific texts makes this a helpful introduction to the writing and reading of English today." Emma Mason, University of Warwick, UK
