The Collected Critical Heritage II
- This format is currently out of stock.
The Critical Heritage gathers together a large body of critical sources on major figures in literature.
In these contemporary reviews from both popular and literary media students can read about how Lady Chatterly's Lover shocked contemporary reviewers or what Ibsen's A Doll's House meant to the early women's movement.
These carefully selected sources include:
- little-known documentary material, such as diaries and correspondence - often between authors and their publishers and critics
- landmark essays in the history of criticism
- significant pieces of criticism from later periods to demonstrate how an author's reputation changed over time.
The Collected Critical HeritageII is available as a set of 42 volumes and the series is also available in mini sets selected by period (in slipcase boxes), and as individual volumes.
'I have used the Critical Heritage series as a graduate student, in my work as a librarian, and I recommend it to my students in a course I teach on Modern Irish Writers. This series allows researchers to trace criticism from the earliest appearance of a work, and is a very fine resource for anyone interested in literature. It is also an essential series for any college library.' - Jean Jacques Strayer, Assistant Professor and Reference Librarian, Hunter College Library, New York, USA
