A new edition of the who's who of over 1,400 fictional characters whose names are sometimes so familiar it's difficult to remember they're imaginary. Included in the biographical parade is Ben Casey, Casper, and Fitzwilliam Darcy, a compendium of high, low, and no brow at all, each exactly recorded with a snippet of biographical anecdote. The reference is as equally useful for scholarly work as it is for killing time in aimless pursuits of information. Distributed by Ashgate. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Kitchener s Lost Boys

In the early days of the First World War, Lord Kitchener made his famous appeal for volunteers to join the New Army. Men flocked to recruiting offices to enlist, and on some days tens of thousands of potential soldiers responded to his call. Men had to be at least eighteen years old to join up, and nineteen to serve overseas, but in the flurry of activity many younger boys came to enlist: some were only thirteen or fourteen. Many were turned away, but a lot were illegally conscripted, and as many as 250,000 underage boys found themselves fighting for King and Country in the First World War. Over half would never return home. In this groundbreaking new book, John Oakes - whose own father-in-law walked out of the Welsh valleys to join the Royal Navy at the age of fourteen - delves into the complex history of Britain's youngest Great War recruits. Focusing on the recruitment crisis of 1914, he reveals why boys joined up, what their experiences were and how they survived to endure a lifetime of memories. For those who didn't, an unknown grave awaited, and in some cases their mothers never knew what had become of their children.

Replacing the Annals of English Literature (first published by OUP in 1935), the Concise Oxford Chronology of English Literature presents a chronological record of around 15,000 works published in the English language since 1474. Like its predecessor, the Annals of English Literature, the purpose of this book is to show, at a glance, the main literary output of a given year. The aim is to display a significant and representative selection of works in relation to the history and culture of the day. The book's primary focus is English literature, understood as works originally written in English by British authors published in Britain, though exceptions have been made for authors born elsewhere (e.g. Henry James) who made their home in Britain, or some colonial authors who published principallywith British publishing houses. Though works of the imagination (poetry, short stories, plays, novels) predominate, 'non-literary' works (biographies, memoirs, critical works, historical scholarship, philosophical and religious texts) are also included. As far as possible the range of works covered represent all levels of literaryoutput and the greats sit alongside long forgotten gems, the trivial, the inspirational, and the unusual, all worthy of remembrance.The works covered generally fall into the following broad categories:DT Fiction (novels, novellas, short-story collections, anthologies, selected juvenile fiction)DT Poetry (individual works, single-author collections, anthologies)DT DramaDT Literary Scholarship (editions of English texts, editions of classical and foreign texts, editions of letters, dictionaries and other reference works, critical studies)DT Non-Fiction (essays, travel and exploration, literary memoirs, biographical studies, philosophical and religious works, historiography, economics)Each year shows a selection of titles published. The titles are arranged alphabetically by author surname. Each entry consists of author's names and dates, title, notes giving information of particular interest and cross-references (not included with every title), and category (e.g. NF fornon-fiction or D for drama).At the beginning of each year there is also a short list of historical events and items of cultural interest, births, and deaths.What were people writing about around the time of the Reformation?Sir Thomas More (1478-1535)A Dialogue Concernynge Heresyes and Matters of ReligionSir Thomas Elyot (1490?-1546) Of the Knowledge whiche Maketh a Wise ManJohn Colet (1467?-1519)The Ordre of a Good Chrysten Mannes LyfeHow did the English Civil War influence literary output?Robert Chamberlain (1607?-60)The Swaggering Damsell: A comedyRalph Cudworth (1617-88)The Union of Christ and the Church, in a ShadowJoseph Hall (1574-1656)An Humble Remonstrance to the High Court of ParliamentWhat was being read after the French Revolution?Edmund Burke (1729-97)Reflections on the Revolution in FranceMary Wollstonecraft (1759-97)A Vindication of the Rights of MenCharlotte Palmer (fl.1790-1800)It is, and it is not a NovelTo what degree did the Industrial Revolution inspire the writers of that day?Charles Babbage (1792-1871)On the Economy of Machinery and ManufacturesWilliam Cobbett (1763-1835)Cobbett's Manchester LecturesGilbert Abbott a Beckett (1811-56)The Revolt of the Workhouse What are we reading about now?Helen Fielding (1958)Bridget Jones's DiaryTed Hughes (1930-98)Birthday LettersZadie Smith (1975)White TeethPhilip Pullman (1946)The Amber SpyglassThe main chronology is supplemented by three indexes. An author index allows readers to view the literary output of any given author in chronological order, an index of periodicals gives a short overview of periodicals published during the period covered, and there is also an index of anonymoustitles.
