9780198606345: The Concise Oxford Chronology of English Literature

What were people reading about as Michelangelo painted the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel? How did the events around the industrial revolution influence the literary output of British writers and thinkers? What are we reading now and how does it differ from what was being read 500 years ago?

The Concise Oxford Chronology of English Literature presents a comprehensive year-by-year digest of significant and representative works of literature published in English by British authors since 1474.
