The Short Oxford History of English Literature provides a comprehensive and authoritative introductory guide to the literature of the British Isles from the Anglo-Saxon period to the present day, including a full treatment of Irish, Scottish, and Welsh writing in English. The chapters are
arranged chronologically, covering all major periods of English literature from Old English to the post-war era, including the medieval period, the Renaissance, Shakespeare, the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Romanticism, the Victorians, Modernism, and Postmodernism. In addition to a detailed
discussion of all major figures and their works, Andrew Sanders examines throughout the relationship between the literary landscape and wider contemporary social, political, and intellectual developments.

'One of the major reasons I recommend the text'. (On Sanders' writing style)
'Informative, accurate, brilliantly comprehensive, the author manages to survey an incredible array of texts while providing a thoughtful resume and analysis of particular works. I really enjoyed reading this book!'
'The book manages to do a very large number of things very intelligently and gracefully...I look forward to seeing the third edition and to being able to recommend it to students'.
