It also offers a comprehensive overview of the evolution and development of life on the British stage, from Christopher Marlowe to T S Eliot. It then traces the development of the British novel from its beginnings in the early eighteenth century till the later decades of the twentieth century, while focusing on various aspects of the novel as a genre, and discussing each novel against its social and cultural contexts.
