What People are Saying About This
Too often literary introductions try to obscure differences between the 'then' and the 'now' when attempting to woo students to the period or offer seemingly easy points of access for new readers; this introduction preserves and celebrates the difference of the period and its literature without suggesting that it is inaccessible.' - Matt Woodcock, University of East Anglia, UK
'This is an immensely readable reference book.' - Helen Smith, Times Higher Education Textbook Guide
