    This may seem a drab topic - and probabably is - but nevertheless it could be of interest to those few devout students who are wishing to broaden their creative horizons.

    Revenge Tragedy
    - John Kerrigan (excellent essays on Hamlet, Dracula, Medea...)

    The Song of the Earth
    - Jonathan Bate (possibly the best book on Pastoral poetry/prose available)

    The Second Sex
    - Simone de Beauviour (an encyclopaedia of feminism, and a thought-provoking examination of the patriarchal attitudes which have pervaded and dominated all political, social and art contexts of history)

    Shakespeare: A Compact Documentary Life
    - Schoepaneur (one of the only biographies of Shakespeare based on written documentation and not conjecture, Romantic fancy or idealism)

    The English Novel - Terry Eagleton (funny, insightful and a far more digestable read than his former Literary Theory)
