Steve V 4.0 out of 5 stars Clear and worthwhile
Reviewed in the United States Verified Purchase
Handy little thing for someone just diving into English Lit; I wish I had read something of the sort it when I switched to that major. Note that it is designed for students in the UK, discussing some of the texts they are likely to study. But American students should find it worthwhile if nothing better is within easy reach.
