9780851247991: The Country and the City

About the Author:

Raymond Williams, Jesus College, Cambridge University.

Review:


"The best book by one of the great literary critics of the century. Ideal for courses in English literature and history alike."--Brie Thompson, UCSC


"Williams has undertaken in this book a critical history of English literature from a stimulatingly original point of view."--Robert Hatch, The Nation


"Williams' historical viewpoint [is] fused out of the materials of an immensely impressive knowledge of literature, a personal commitment, and a sophisticated sort of impressionism."--Alan Goldfein, Commentary


"Its readings are original, its prose is concise, and it is particularly affecting because it expresses its author's concern with its themes."--Naomi Bliven, The New Yorker
