The Short Oxford History of English Literature is the most comprehensive and scholarly history of English literature on the market. It offers an introductory guide to the literature of the British Isles from the Anglo-Saxon period to the present day in eleven chapters covering all the major periods of English literature chronologically. Professor Sanders provides detailed analysis of the major writers and their works and examines the impact of British literature on contemporary political, social and intellectual developments.

This third edition has been revised and updated for a 21st century reader, incorporating discussion of a greater number of female and contemporary authors.

Readership: Undergraduate English Literature students in the UK, US and elsewhere.
