50 Literature Ideas You Really Need to Know

50 Literature Ideas You Really Need to Know - John Sutherland 50 (too) short essays explaining important concepts in literature and criticism. The book is written in a very chatty style, some of the ideas aren't clearly explained, and the author makes at least one ridiculous mistake in asserting that "we" (by which he means Anglo-Saxons) were conquered by the Romans; every English-speaking schoolchild knows or ought to know that the Anglo-Saxon invasion and settlement of Britain is post-Roman. These make it hard to take the book completely seriously.
