I used this book as part of a course at Syracuse University in the early 1970s, and kept it with me more than 35 years. It disappeared in a recent move and it was sorely missed. I recently checked Amazon and there it was, blue cover and all. Joyce, Conrad, Coleridge, Byron, Shelly, Keats, Auden, Tennyson, Wordsworth, Dylan Thomas, all back. I was surprised when the edition that arrived was smaller, much newer, and didn't have all the pictures from the 1970s edition (I'm sure "The Scream" was in the 1970s version, and some of the pics were in color, but I could be wrong about that). I don't know if the error in the picture was the vendor or Amazon, but what counts is, all the poets & poetry are there. So was "Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man", "Ulysses" (Joyce & Tennyson), "Heart of Darkness" (Apocalypse Now, anyone?). It isn't PC to read DWM literature any more, I guess, but having these old friends back is wonderful.

This is a very good survey of twentieth century British literature. It is an excellent supplement to a course teaching full length novels. To pack this much information into 709 pages, the font size had to be reduced. Drink your carrot juice, then enjoy.

I'm very happy with this book because it is much cheaper than any other places and the condition is still very good.
