Description - Devolving English Literature by Robert Crawford
This volume examines the rise and fall of "Britishness" in literature over the last three centuries, arguing that for much of its history the subject of "English literature" has been bound up with an assumed English cultural centre. The book examines the literary construction and questioning of a British (rather than simply English) literary identity.
