Stretching deep into the Pennines, the former industrial town of Clagsborough straddles the confluence of the rivers Claggy and Hengment in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The fingertips of three other conurbations sit just out of reach of its ancient triskelion ghyll: Hopplesdale to the west; Lower Wharram to the north west; with the city of Fuggley-on-Aire to the south.

An Introduction to Literature, Criticism and Theory: Fifth Edition
Andrew Bennett, A. & Nicholas Royle, 2016), Routledge

Lively, original and highly readable, An Introduction to Literature, Criticism and Theory is the essential guide to literary studies. Starting at ‘The Beginning’ and concluding with ‘The End’, chapters range from the familiar, such as ‘Character’, ‘Narrative’ and ‘The Author’, to the more unusual, such as ‘Secrets’, ‘Pleasure’ and ‘Ghosts’. Now in its fifth edition, Bennett and Royle’s classic textbook successfully illuminates complex ideas by engaging directly with literary works, so that a reading of Jane Eyre opens up ways of thinking about racial difference, for example, while Chaucer, Raymond Chandler and Monty Python are all invoked in a discussion of literature and laughter.

The fifth edition has been revised throughout and includes four new chapters – ‘Feelings’, ‘Wounds’, ‘Body’ and ‘Love’ – to incorporate exciting recent developments in literary studies. In addition to further reading sections at the end of each chapter, the book contains a comprehensive bibliography and a glossary of key literary terms.

A breath of fresh air in a field that can often seem dry and dauntingly theoretical, this book will open the reader’s eyes to the exhilarating possibilities of reading and studying literature.

Also Reading: Geoffrey Chaucer, Nevill Coghill [Trans.], 'The Canterbury Tales' (Penguin, 2003); Constance Hale, 'Sin and Syntax' (Three Rivers Press, 2013)

Four Horsemen, Ross Ashcroft, 2012

Twenty-three leading thinkers explain how the world really works and the fundamental flaws in the economic system which have brought our civilization to the brink of disaster. The film pulls no punches in describing the consequences of continued inaction – but its message is one of hope. If more people can equip themselves with a better understanding of how the world really works, then the systems and structures that condemn billions to poverty or chronic insecurity can at last be overturned.
