English Lit 101 : From Jane Austen to George Orwell and the Enlightenment to Realism, an Essential Guide to Britain's Greatest Writers and Works Hardback

Part of the Adams 101 series

Description

A guide to the greats in British literature! From Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Charles Dickens' Tiny Tim to Jane Austen's Mr. Darcy and Shakespeare's Juliet, British authors have created some of the most compelling characters in all of literature.

But too often, textbooks reduce these vibrant voices to boring summaries that would put even an English dean to sleep. English Lit 101 is an engaging and comprehensive guide through the major players in American literature.

From romanticism to modernism and every literary movement in between, this primer is packed with hundreds of entertaining tidbits and concepts, along with easy-to-understand explanations on why each author's work was important then and still relevant now.

So whether you're looking for a refresher course on key English literature or want to learn about it for the first time, English Lit 101 has all the answers--even the ones you didn't know you were looking for.
