This supplement reflects the newest scholarship on some of the most important figures featured in the original British Writers set. Twenty brand new articles, all written by scholars, provide a fresh look at writers such as Chaucer, William Blake, Charles Dickens, James Joyce, W. B. Yeats, T. S. Eliot, Joseph Conrad and many others.
"Adding to the seven volumes in the original set, this volume offers reconsideration of 22 major British and Irish authors, including Auden, Beckett, Blake, Fielding, Golding, Heaney, Joyce, Marlowe, Pinter, Shelley, Swift, Woolf and Yeats. A chronology at the beginning of the volume starts with 1422 and ends with 2001. A selected bibliography at the end of each entry will allow students to look further. If you have the original set, you will want this supplement. If you do not, you should check the list to see if you need further information on the 22 authors included here."
