KIRKUS REVIEW

There are all kinds of creative artists in the field of literature, but there is only one kind of critic of books who is of the least value and that is the critic who makes us want to go and read the books he criticizes"". So she starts out -- and so she follows through, in a thoughtful, scholarly, and delightful survey of the various fields of English Literature:-literature of gossip, essays, lyric poetry, biography, novel, epic and narrative poetry, drama, criticism. A book that college and high school libraries should have within constant reach --a book that should stimulate plus sales of the classics.
