I was made to buy this in my first Lit Crit class as an undergrad and, although we never directly used it in the class, this has been one of the most valuable books I collected in college!

This is a fantastic resource for English teachers and students. Most entries are easily accessible for students at the college level.

I have used this book in large ammounts of my literature studies at the university, and despite bing an old edition it still holds key terms to make studies just a little easier on students.
