1000 Years of English Literature: A Treasury of Literary Manuscripts
Chris Fletcher (au)
From the 10th-cent. manuscript of “Beowulf” to the work of such 20th-cent. authors as Sylvia Plath, this beautifully illustrated book presents a panorama of more than 1000 years of literature in English through original manuscripts. It reproduces manuscripts by 80 of the greatest Brit. and Irish writers of the last millennium, from Lamory and Shakespeare to Swift and Pope, from Coleridge and Wordsworth to T.S. Eliot and Dylan Thomas. Presented in large color reproductions, they offer fascinating insights into the world of the writer at work. The text explains the significance of each manuscript and its importance to our understanding of the literature and the author. Each entry gives an overview of the writer’s life, works, and times. Oversize. 200 illus. in full color.
