Recensione:

"Dominic Rainsford’s introduction to literature in English is witty and instructive, his limpid prose the perfect vehicle for guiding the reader through the inner workings of poetry, prose , film and drama. He is expert on what makes literature the art form that it is: his analyses of Beowulf, Chaucer, Donne, Shakespeare, Blake, Pride and Prejudice, and the language of films, for example Vertigo, take nothing for granted. In each case he really does start at the very beginning with ‘why’ and ‘how’. Hard to believe that this has not been done before, or if, not nearly so well. This short book’s lack of jargon, its penetrating intelligence, humanity, and sheer love of its subject render it the perfect primer for A-level and university students of literature in English; and for seasoned professionals too, who will find much to admire in it." Professor Rene Weis FRSA, Department of English, UCL, UK
