But it remains faithful to Sir Paul Harvey's original vision of an authoritative work placing English literature in its widest context: no other volume offers such extensive exploration of the classical roots of English literature and the European authors and works that influenced its development, in recognition of the fact that literature in English cannot and should not be divorced from the cultural context from which it grew."

Informed by the latest scholarly thinking, and comprehensively cross-referenced to guide the reader to topics of related interest."--BOOK JACKET.
