This great survey of English Literature, by two French Scholars, from the seventh century to the present time has a reputation for comprehensiveness, accuracy and readability.

The singular value of this work lies in its enlargement of the vision to see our own literature, magnificent as it is, in European perspective and this is not through direct comparison, but more winningly, through the operation upon it of the critical minds trained in another great literature.

This new edition carries a new section, dealing with post World War literature. This new material consists of three chapters: The Novel and Short Story, The Theatre and Poetry.

In this edition each chapter has been revised to take stock of current writing.


For its intelligence, learning, complete absence of bias, its accuracy and freshness, this book deserves praise and our gratitude. - - The Times Literary Supplement
