First published in 1932, as the second edition of a 1907 original, this informative and insightful book was aimed at a wide readership and was primarily intended 'to give a connected account of the successive movements of English literature, to describe the work of writers both of primary and of secondary importance, and to discuss the interaction between English and foreign literatures'. Chapter titles include, 'Old English Christian Poetry', 'The Arthurian Legend' and 'Metrical Romances 1200-1500'.
