The Oxford Companion to American Literature

Algonquin Round Table was a group of journalists, playwrights, actors, and writers who gathered daily at a special table in the Rose Room at the Algonquin Hotel on West Forty-fourth Street in New York City from 1919 to about 1929. Their witticisms and jokes appeared in Franklin P. Adams's column "The Conning Tower" in the New York Tribune, conveying an alluring "insider's" image of metropolitan literary and theatrical life to far-flung readers. Core members included Adams, Robert Benchley, Heywood Broun, Edna Ferber, George S. Kaufman, Harpo Marx, Dorothy Parker, Robert Sherwood, Alexander Woollcott, and Harold Ross, editor of The New Yorker.

The Oxford Companion to English Literature (Sixth Edition revised)

‘No guide could come more classic than The Oxford Companion to English Literature ... the literary reference source of first resort’ — Malcolm Bradbury, The Times

The sixth edition of The Oxford Companion to English Literature, published in 2000, was extensively revised, expanded, and updated; this is a revised issue of that edition, ensuring that the Companion remains absolutely up to date. In addition to the extensive coverage of writers, works, literary theory, allusions, and characters, there are sixteen featured essay-style entries on key topics including black British literature, fantasy fiction, and modernism. The text has been written by a team of more than 140 contributors under Margaret Drabble's editorial direction, including such distinguished names as Brian Aldiss, Lisa Appignanesi, Penelope Fitzgerald, Roy Porter, and Salman Rushdie, each writing on his or her specialist field of knowledge. The Companion places English literature in its widest context, offering an extensive exploration of the classical roots of English literature, and the European and non-European works and writers that have influenced its development.

Margaret Drabble is a distinguished novelist and biographer. Her many novels include Jerusalem the Golden (1967), The Needle's Eye (1972), The Witch of Exmoor (1996), and The Peppered Moth (2001). She has also written biographies of Arnold Bennett (1974) and Angus Wilson (1995).
