This is a fantastic resource for English teachers and students. Most entries are easily accessible for students at the college level.more
Ok, the book is quite *hefty*, but it does become very handy if you are studying for an English degree. I had a smaller one, but I ended up buying this one because I was losing out on some literary criticism terms. Some entries do takes a certain number of pages, and can be quite confusing, but other ones are fine, and the terms allowed me to understand some particularly complicated terms. This book will be kept on my shelves, because it has become an essential tool for my studies.more
