Description
Why did June 16, 1904, matter so much to James Joyce? Which great literary love affair was brought to a tragic end on February 11, 1963? And why did Roy Campbell punch Stephen Spender in the nose on April 14, 1949? Love, sex, death, boredom, ecstasy, existential angst, political upheaval—the history of literature offers a rich and varied exploration of the human condition across the centuries. In this book, two esteemed English professors of the University College London turn up some of the most inspiring, enlightening, surprising, and curious artifacts on the subject, giving us an absorbing companion to our rich literary heritage with entries for each day of the year.
