Reviews
"This companion is a highly authoritative resource, with clear, concise, and approachable entries on literary topics of high interest to students and scholars of English literature. An essential reference..."--Library Journal

"Any book expansive enough to contain both Ferdinand de Saussure's theory of structuralism and Richard Scarry's elegant everyman, Lowly Worm, is an essential purchase."-- ISchool Library Journal

"The brief entries on writers and individual works and the comprhensible definitions of literary terms are The Oxford Companion's strengths. In a nod to the outstanding core of entries in previous iterations, current editor and Victorian scholar Birch shares credit on the spine and jacket flap with Margaret Drabble, editor of the fifth and sixth editions."
