H. Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, George Bernard Shaw, and other noted authors.The works are presented chronologically and original publication dates are given where available.
  • Here you will find collected a nice little edition of good essays. It is exactly what it says it is. It is a dover edition, so you ought to expect a cheaper and flimsier copy, but it is thick, and in my opinion slightly sturdier than most other dover editions. For the price, it can't be beat.

  • Great Kindle edition. Thanks!

  • This book was what my daughter needed for her 7th grade class.

  • Good to see the evolution of the essay form through he styles of the various writers.
    Besides, such happy, relaxed reading!
