sinopsis

A familiar reference work undergoes some fine-tuning and updating in this revision. Thousands of alphabetically arranged entries cover authors, literary terms, works of literature, literary characters, and more in densely packed, double-columned pages. Among the concise entries are more than a dozen two-page survey articles addressing such topics as literary genres (e.g., "Ghost Stories," "Historical Fiction," "Romantic Fiction") and movements ("Modernism," "Structuralism and Post-structuralism"). Three appendixes complete the work: a chronology of principal literary works, a list of British poets laureate, and a list of literary award winners, including the Nobel Prize for Literature, the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, the Carnegie Medal, and the Man Booker Prize.
When RBB reviewed the sixth edition in 2001, several slight criticisms were registered: the omission of a number of contemporary authors (Nicola Barker, Thomas Kinsella, and Tim Winton) was noted; the article on The Oxford English Dictionary did not talk about the availability of an online version or the three-volume supplement to the second edition; J. K. Rowling was not included either in an entry or in the survey articles about fantasy fiction and children's literature; the chronology did not mention any literary works published after 1998. This revised edition improves upon only some of these points: Barker, Kinsella, and Winton are still left out; the article on the OED is still in need of revision; J. K. Rowling is at least mentioned in the survey article "Children's Literature" (as is Philip Pullman, but neither he nor Rowling rate their own entries). On the other hand, the chronology as well as the lists of literary award winners have been brought up to date and mention literary works published through 2005.

As noted in 2001, despite its slight imperfections, The Oxford Companion to English Literature continues to serve as a reliable handbook and general guide
