"Although there are numerous walking and climbing guides there is -astonishingly - no comprehensive guide to the numerous literary connections of the Lake District. Grevel Lindop has filled that gap, steering us through all the Lakeland places, famous and unknown, from the Wordworths' Dove Cottage to Blea Tarn, subject of Auden's first poem, from Beatrix Potter's Sawrey to the site of Mervyn Bragg's MAID OF BUTTERMERE. Effortless scholarship, easy wit and a real love of the Lakes make this a delightful book, also an immensley practical one, following the main routes through the Lakes with the help of maps and local plans, and illustrated with integrated period engravings and line drawings by well known artists, including Beatrix Potter. The book is beautifully designed, with different sections for the five major routes throught the Lake District. Car parks sre indicated, directions are clearly given, as are details and opening times of all sites open to the public."

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 4 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
