British Writers, Supplement XV By Jay Parini Number Of Pages: 544 Publication Date: 2001-12-20 ISBN-10 / ASIN: 0684315556 ISBN-13 / EAN: 9780684315553
Supplement XV is focused on contemporary writers, many of whom have had little sustained attention from critics thus far, although most are well known. As ever, the purpose in presenting these critical and biographical essays is to bring readers back to the texts discussed, to help them in their reading, and to generate appreciation for the role these writers have played in the creation of a distinguished and useful cultural past and literary present. These are strong and stimulating essays, and they should enable students and general readers to enter into the world of these writers freshly, encouraging them on their intellectual journeys.
