“Penguin critical anthologies is a series collecting criticism on major English, American and European writers. Each volume contains a full selection from the writer on his own art, contemporary reception, later criticism and (in each case the longest section) modern critical discussions and analyses. The editor contributes introductions, a table of dates, a bibliography and a full glossarial index. The anthologized passages range in length from a paragraph to a complete essay, and the principle has been to encourage the widest possible range of opinion, critical viewpoint and method.”.
