    1. The first 'Oxford Companion to English Literature' was published in 1932 under the editorial direction of Sir Paul Harvey (no relation the American radio commentator). Half a century and five editions later, this is still a standard, authoritative reference work necessary for scholars and interested non-experts alike.Under the editorship of Margaret Drabble, author and biographer (known for 'The Witch of Exmoor' and the more recently published 'The Peppered Moth'), this volume remains faithful t [...]

    2. I teach English literature, so this book is invaluable to me, but also for anyone who watches movies based on nineteenth-century. Want to know characters and plot of such novels? This will give you enough information to distinguish Bingley from Darcy, or why Emma is such an idiot. If you want to know more, this has plot summaries of major works from Beowulf to the time the book was written. She has updated (usually) entries from previous editions and given much more information about women a [...]

    3. It's hard to answer questions about fiction when what you've got is a reference book :) This edition is somewhat outdated but still useful for quick reference, about on the level of wiki.

    4. As a Scottish-American, I must take exception to the very title of this mammoth work, as it should have been titled 'The Oxford Companion to British Literature' seeing as how it deals with Scottish, Irish and Welsh writers as well as English ones. Scotland is not part of England! Furthermore, what possessed Drabble to greatly expand the bulk of an already bulky book with so many articles on foreign writers? So what if they "had an influence" on British writers? At least she got it right by i [...]

    6. A wonderful resource and superbly edited by Ms Drabble to not only meet the founding principles of this work (which first appeared in the 1930's) but also to consider the ever changing parimeters of what good and great literature is, a highly subjective notion at best. The title almost does not do this work justice, it bestows it with a crusty old British acaedemic image. You almost imagine having to blow the dust off it before you can begin! But it is so much more rich and diverse than this and [...]
