Describes key characters from major 19th century literary texts, and offers an examination of the actual works
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Grade 12 Up-This handy companion to Characters in 20th Century Literature (Gale, 1989) should be dog-earred from frequent use in no time. The compiler has made every attempt to include a wide variety of women and writers from non-English speaking countries. (A few appear in both volumes since they span two centuries.) Entries are alphabetically arranged by author and include detailed plot summaries and analyses of main characters; secondary characters are also examined, although not in depth. Books and articles relating to the individual authors and their works are appended to each entry. Character (arranged by last name) and title indexes conclude this comprehensive and readable reference.
