BRITISH WRITERS Classics, Volume ll By Jay Parini Number Of Pages: 384 Publication Date: 1980-10-01 ISBN-10: 0684312697 ISBN-13: 9780684312699
This second volume of British Writers Classics is largely concerned with novels. We take up a fair number of novels that must be considered central to the British tradition of literary fiction, and a fair number of these were written during the nineteenth century, when the novel as a genre came into its own, and when novelists were just discovering the range and power of fiction. Three poets are included here, represented by studies of their major long poems or poem-sequences. Two plays are discussed: Waiting for Godot and Copenhagen.
