Organized chronologically the book reproduces manuscripts by 80 of the greatest British and Irish writers of the last millennium, from Malory and Shakespeare to Swift and Pope, from Coleridge and Wordsworth to T. S. Eliot and Dylan Thomas including such masterpieces of literature as Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre, and Virginia Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway."--BOOK JACKET.
