The medieval period offers a rich variety of literature and was crucial to the development of English Literature and particularly to the development of key literary genres. However, differences between Medieval and Modern language can make this a challenging area to approach. In this handy guide, Corinne Saunders focuses on English and Continental literature, offering: An overview of the literature within the broader social, political and cultural history of the period the development of literary genres that remain recognisable and influential today – lyric, romance, drama the nature of manuscript culture, the limits on literacy in the medieval period, the importance of literary sources, and the very different attitudes of medieval writers to ideas of originality consideration of Medieval English Literature within a wider international context of cultural exchange Introductions to the most widely read authors of the time - the Gawain-poet, Langland, Chaucer, Gower and Malory – alongside some less familiar writers and genres An epilogue will briefly trace the afterlives of medieval literature, and its role in shaping the English literary canon, particularly from the Romantic period onwards. This volume will be enlightening reading for anyone approaching study of Medieval literature, or interested in the development and origins of the literature we read today.

Emily Brontë's only novel, a work of tremendous and far-reaching influence. Lockwood, the new tenant of Thrushcross Grange, situated on the bleak Yorkshire moors, is forced to seek shelter one night at Wuthering Heights, the home of his landlord. There he discovers the history of the tempestuous events that took place years before; of the intense relationship between the gypsy foundling Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw; and how Catherine, forced to choose between passionate, tortured Heathcliff and gentle, well-bred Edgar Linton, surrendered to the expectations of her class. As Heathcliff's bitterness and vengeance at his betrayal is visited upon the next generation, their innocent heirs must struggle to escape the legacy of the past. In this edition, a new preface by Lucasta Miller, author of The Brontë Myth, looks at the ways in which the novel has been interpreted, from Charlotte Brontë onwards. This complements Pauline Nestor's introduction, which discusses changing critical receptions of the novel, as well as Emily Brontë's influences and background. Emily Brontë (1818-48), along with her sisters, Charlotte and Anne, was one of the most significant literary figures of the 19th century. She wrote just one strikingly innovative novel, Wuthering Heights, but was also a gifted and intense poet. If you enjoyed Wuthering Heights, you may like Charlotte Brontë's Jane Eyre, also available in Penguin Classics. 'Wuthering Heights is commonly thought of as "romantic", but try rereading it without being astonished by the comfortableness with which Brontë's characters subject one another to extremes of physical and psychological violence' Jeanette Winterson 'As a first novel, there is very little that can compare to it. Even Shakespeare took over a decade to reach the clifftop extremities of King Lear' Sarah Waters
