I really love the digital York Notes version I’ve purchased, particularly the facility to add notes. Debbie Ward, English Teacher, Barton Court Grammar School Academy
The York Notes Companion to the Long 18th Century traces the development of literature in English from the poets and playwrights of the Restoration through to the great eighteenth-century novelists and satirists. Examining the cultural and intellectual contexts that shaped the work of writers from Dryden to Defoe, such as trade, colonial expansion, slavery, and print culture, the Companion offers close readings of texts, and guides students through the key literary theories and debates that inform the study of the literature of this period. Connecting texts with their historical and scholarly contexts, this is essential reading for any student of eighteenth-century literature.
