The works chosen for World Literature and Its Times 4: British and Irish Literature and Its Times have been carefully selected by professors in the field at the universities detailed in the Acknowledgements.
Keeping the literature-history connection in mind, the team made its selections based on a combination of factors: how frequently a literary work is studied, how closely it is tied to pivotal events in the past or present, how strong and enduring its appeal has been to readers in and out of the society that produced it, and how reflective it is of new developments in literature of the region. Attention has been paid to literary works set from the Victorian era to the present that have met with critical and/or popular acclaim.
