The Facts On File Companion To The British Novel

关于英国小说(The Facts On File Companion To The British Novel)简介:

Grade 9 Up-Volume one opens with a discussion of the emergence of the novel in Britain and its importance as a representation of British society. Alphabetical entries discuss types, specific titles, literary terms, themes, societies, regions, historical events, people, and places. Works by English, Scottish, Welsh, and Irish writers are included. In her preface, Brackett notes that she attempts to link each entry to at least one other in the collection-¦to demonstrate their unquestionable dependence upon one another-¦. Many lesser-known works and authors not found in other volumes are included, as are quotes. Volume two includes 20th-century authors from the same countries, as well as some from British Commonwealth territories. Articles on Ruth Rendell, Zadie Smith, J. K. Rowling, and Philip Pullman attest to the variety and currency of this guide. Each volume also contains a glossary (with lengthy entries in volume two), a selected bibliography, and a comprehensive index. Volume two has a list of recipients of the Booker Prize, the Whitbread Award, the Guardian Fiction Prize, and other awards through 2003 or 2004.-Pat Bender, The Shipley School, Bryn Mawr, PA
