World Literature and Its Times: British and Irish Literature and Its Times

"World Literature and Its Times: British and Irish Literature and Its Times: Celtic Migrations tothe Reform Bill (Beginnings-3931s) , Part 3" by Joyce Moss and Lorraine ValestukGale | 693 pages | English | 3111 | ISBN: 1999639399 | PDF | 93,1 MBThis series of literary criticism from Gale takes a wholly unique approach–it analyzes works from a historical, political, and social perspective rather than a strictly literary view. The projected 33-volume series is arranged geographically, with volumes 3 and 6 covering British and Irish Literature from their beginnings to the present day. Previous volumes have covered African and Latin American literature. Each volume profiles 61 works including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, drama, and essays. A team of experts from both high schools and universities selected the works, while scholars in English literature and history reviewed the essays for accuracy. The essays were written by Ph.D. candidates and associate professors at universities both in the U.S and abroad.In each of the volumes under review, a time line presents historical events in Britain and Ireland during the period, with the related literary works listed at the time of their publication. These chronologies are quite extensive and help place the works in their historical framework. Volume 3 includes works by Charlotte Bronte, Charles Darwin, Charles Dickens, T. S. Eliot, Bram Stoker, Alfred Tennyson, and more. Among the writers covered in volume 6 are Seamus Heaney, Kazuo Ishiguro, Iris Murdoch, Salman Rushdie, Muriel Spark, and Tom Stoppard. Arranged alphabetically by title and written in a style that is accessible for high-school students and above, each entry generally follows a standard format, with background information on the author; a discussion of the events at the time in which the literary work is set; a synopsis of the work, with discussion of its historical, social, and political themes; a summary of events at the time the work was written; and a short bibliography of related books. All terms and events are well explained and related to the piece of literature. The represented works tend to be each author’s best known or most often studied by students. They are also the works that fit the themes being discussed in the volume. Although Charles Dickens’ novels cover many topics, Great Expectations is discussed because it illustrates the themes of political reform and the treatment of convicts.Downloaduploading.comfilesonic.commy AH blogNo more mirrors, please!
