A Short History of English Literature

(1984)
A non fiction book by

 
 
Thoroughly updated to include writers such as Caryl Churchill, Brian Friel, Martin Amis and Graham Swift, this book provides a survey of English literature which is aimed at students beginning a university course. Robert Barnard examines the most important writers within each period from the time of Chaucer, and focuses on one or two of their works in detail. He deals briefly with the earlier periods and more fully with the last two centuries, moving right to the present with a detailed coverage of the post-war novel and theatre. His book draws together history, criticism, established ideas and fresh views.
