Devolving English Literature

2nd Edition

Robert Crawford

Published by Edinburgh University Press

This book looks at 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, it examines the literary construction and questioning of a British (rather than simply English) literary identity.
