A chronological overview of English literature by Gilbert Phelps - an educationist and author best known for nine distinguished novels that he wrote between 1953 and 1975 and for his literary criticism which embraces several foreign literatures, chiefly Russian and African.
\"This book sets out to tell the story of English literature from Beowulf to the 1930s by means of the broad general themes, as they present themselves to one individual observer...It is a book that is primarily meant to be read and enjoyed by the general reader as a consecutive story, rather than to be studied as a handbook to examinations in \'Eng. Lit.\'..\"
