    While the book is really informative and covers absolutely every topic. It needs to be segregated based on differing topics.

    I wouldn't call it a 'good' read, simply because it isn't the best idea for a complete beginner. There were so many poets I just couldn't bring myself to care about, and I don't know how much I would retain beyond the barest facts. Still, it was enough to keep me reading until the end (almost, for I skimmed the last two chapters).

    Sorry, this was once a 'bible' amongst students, I am talking really ancient scholastic history here; however, this is more of a reference text than a 'critical guide'. There is little 'criticism' to be such. I had to do all four volumes as a juvenile reader, and it is not inspiring at all: basic, dry facts on each author in a rather quick sequence, five or so pages on Chaucer, maybe fifteen on Shakespeare, but what can one get from so few pages? I ended up using the then Pelican, now Penguin Guide instead. As I said, good if you need a 'dictionary of English authors', nothing more.

    I have conquered the first volume of this dryness, critical literary history, and more dryness. It was quite like travelling through a hot, dry desert: laborious and tough, but fantastic, nevertheless.Daiches leaves you feeling enlightened, except the enlightenment is very dearly bought.
