    Yesterday's Classics has found another Marshall book to reprint. Good choice. Providing a historical look at the writers of English/British literature, this collection includes background information and excerpts of their writings, interweaving the literature selection with the historical setting. It's a masterful and encompassing way to approach literature. Especially in the earlier portions, the author has tried to keep the literature in touch with history because he felt it illustrates how the political development of the country was influenced by and influenced the literary development. At the end of many sections is a list of Books to Read suggesting additional and complete works to read.

    The author says the selections were chosen because they seemed to best illustrate the breadth and depth of English/British literature; although, sometimes he admits to choosing something because of its appeal to young people, as it is not always a writer's greatest or best known work that can be most easily grasped by young minds.

    The selection of authors and works is massive; grand; sweeping. However, it is possible to detect an interesting bias. There are no selections from women even though there were some women who had received literary notice by the end of the nineteenth century, most notably Charlotte Bronte and Jane Austen. There seems to be equal time given to poetry and prose.

    There are no lesson plans, assignment charts, or even discussion questions. The publisher does provide a chronological list of the writers included correlated with a list of monarchs that would make it easy to correlate readings to historical studies. Although this would not be considered a complete literature course, it is a valuable collection of well-selected literary works beautifully presented with comprehensive historical and literary analysis. 666 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    George Bernard Shaw wrote this comedic play about love and war in 1894, yet it continues to be his most performed play around the world. It takes place during the 1885 Serbo-Bulgarian War and features a heroine named Raina who is engaged to Sergius, a war hero. During the war Raina hides another man named Bluntschli in her home, but he leaves before Sergius returns from battle. Upon his return, Sergius himself seems more interested in the servant girl then in Raina, but when Bluntschli returns for a visit and seems romantically interested in Raina, Sergius threatens him with a duel. Full of humor and romance, this play is a sure hit. Complete and unabridged version, 56 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel
