About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1923, this book contains twelve essays on English literature and analysis. Kellett prefaces the collection by saying that, although many of his opinions in the essays will not be universally accepted, 'it will be enough if they provoke thought and stimulate discussion'. Six of the articles concern Shakespeare's style and attitude, while the other half examine authors such as Chaucer, Macaulay and Dryden. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in English literature and historical literary criticism.
