9780415284226: Doing English (Doing... Series)

Aimed at students in the final year of secondary education or beginning degrees, this readable book provides the ideal introduction to studying English literature. Doing English:

  • explains what 'doing English' really means
  • introduces current ideas about literature, contexts and interpretations
  • bridges the gap between 'traditional' and 'theoretical' approaches to literature, showing why English has had to change and what those changes mean for students of the subject.

Doing English deals with the exciting new ideas and contentious debates that make up English today, covering a broad range of issues from the history of literary studies and the canon to Shakespeare, politics and the future of English. The second edition has been revised throughout and includes a new chapter on narrative. Robert Eaglestone's refreshingly clear explanations and advice make this volume essential reading for all those planning to 'do English' at advanced or degree level.
