The Critical Heritage gathers together a large body of critical
sources on major figures in literature. Each volume presents
contemporary responses to a writer's work, enabling students and
researchers to read for themselves, for example, comments on early
performances of Shakespeare's plays, or reactions to the first
publication of Jane Austen's novels. The carefully selected sources
range from landmark essays in the history of criticism to
journalism and contemporary opinion, and little published
documentary material such as letters and diaries. Significant
pieces of criticism from later periods are also included, in order
to demonstrate the fluctuations in an author's reputation. Each
volume contains an introduction to the writer's published works, a
selected bibliography, and an index of works, authors and subjects.
The Collected Critical Heritage set will be available as a set of
68 volumes and the series will also be available in mini sets
selected by period (in slipcase boxes) and as individual volumes.
