BRITISH WRITERS - Supplement I By Ian Scott-Kilvert Number Of Pages: 465 Publication Date: 1987 ISBN-10: 0684186128 ISBN-13: 9780684186122
British Writers, Volume 1-8 (vol.8 is an index to volumes 1-7), is a collection of critical essays covering writers who have made significant contributions to British, Irish, and Commonwealth literature from the 14th century to the present day. The contributors analyze many individual works and engage the reader with their distinctive themes and stylistic. Introductory essays and chronological tables open each volume and provide historical background.
The goal of the supplements has been consistent with the original idea of the series: to provide clear, informative essays aimed at the general reader. These essays often rise to a high level of craft and critical vision, but they are meant to introduce a writer of some importance in the history of British or Anglophone literature, and to provide a sense of the scope and nature of the career under review.
