Norton (1903-1993) wrote for children, and The Borrowers books are among her best known. This assessment of her novels' persistent themes, character types, and situations draws parallels between the novels and Norton's life experience, and examines her writings in light of 20th-century British literature and contemporary critical theory.

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.
