about this item

This Companion explores the Bible's role and influence on individual writers, whilst tracing the key developments of Biblical themes and literary theory through the ages. An ambitious overview of the Bible's impact on English literature – as arguably the most powerful work of literature in history – from the medieval period through to the twentieth-century.

Includes introductory sections to each period giving background information about the Bible as a source text in English literature, and placing writers in their historical context.

Draws on examples from medieval, early-modern, eighteenth-century and Romantic, Victorian, and Modernist literature.

Includes many 'secular' or 'anti-clerical' writers alongside their 'Christian' contemporaries, revealing how the Bible's text shifts and changes in the writing of each author who reads and studies it.
