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 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 are meant to introduce a writer of some importance in the history of British or Anglophone literature.

Supplement XII centers on contemporary writers from various genres and traditions who have had little sustained attention from critics, although most are well known.

Among the poets discussed are Fleur Adcock, Kamau Brathwaite, G.F. Dutton, Peter Fallon, Hugh MacDiarmid, and R.S. Thomas.

A fair number of contemporary fiction writers are considered, including Peter Carey, Louis De-Bernières, Janice Galloway, Philip Kerr, David Malouf, and Patrick O’Brian.
