Borrowing History: HPL has moved to a new
library system. Please consider using the Completed
Shelf Feature. The Completed and For Later shelf features
are great ways to track what you've borrowed and what you would like to borrow. Borrowing history is limited to 500 items to improve site
speed and performance.
Based on the text of Margaret Drabble's 1995 edition, this sixth edition has been completely reworked and expanded. There are nearly 600 entirely new entries to reflect the new figures and issues of English Literature in the new millennium, and the existing entries have been extensivelyrevised and updated to incorporate the latest scholarship. But this new edition remains faithful to Sir Paul Harvey's original vision of an authoritative work placing English literature from the Classical world, Europe, Latin America, and beyond. In addition to the extensive coverage of writers,works, literary theory, allusions, and characters, there are sixteen featured essay-style entries on key topics including black British literature, fantasy fiction, and modernism.
